Shiver me accounting timbers!

Following the recent revelation that the now former ICAEW president Paul Druckman is a Womble (supporter and shareholder of footy club AFC Wimbledon), it seemed appropriate that new president Ian Morris today likened chief exec Eric Anstee to a pirate. Yes, you heard it right, a pirate. The revelation almost made TS choke on the duck main course being consumed at the ICAEW President’s lunch this afternoon.Indeed, Morris revealed to guests that his own wife had indeed suggested Anstee was ‘handsome’ and ‘piratical looking’!

We all know that Anstee will need a lot more than swarthy good looks to deal with CPD, institute mergers et al. Sightings of a plank emerging from one of the hall’s windows out onto Moorgate Place

cannot be confirmed.
