TS IS SORRY to see Alan Johnson step down.
Self-deprecating but packing a punch, he was always good value – and now we’re left with front benches Oxbridged-up to the nines.
But more importantly for Accountancy Age followers, Johnson is the first drop-out from our Financial Power List. Is it a curse? You’d have to ask those Romanian witches, TS thinks.
Ironically, 23rd-placed Johnson has been replaced by a certain ex-Power Lister known as Ed Balls.
Mr B is quite notorious at the Age after he was placed as number 1 in the list for 2007. The then economic secretary to the Treasury was tipped at the time as the future chancellor. We weren’t wrong, no way, just a bit ahead of our time.
