Long John Anstee hobbled

Pirate_anstee You might remember comments made by new ICAEW president Ian Morris recently about chief exec Eric Anstee. He admitted that his wife thought Anstee had ‘piratical’ good looks. You can read the story here.

So imagine TS’s shock this morning at the ICAEW’s annual conference when Anstee hobbled onstage with a cane under his arm, looking the spitting image of Long John Silver. However Morris was at pains (no pun intended) to point out the Eric had taken a fall playing tennis at the weekend. TS prefers to think that, in fact, he dropped a chest full of doubloons on his leg while burying his treasure on a remote topical island, letting out a hearty arrrrrrrrrrrrrrr as he did so.
