Qualified opinion over Smith's Deloitte credentials

Cameron gets wrong end of the stick from Smith's Deloitte credentials

TS HAD to laugh at the Mail’s take on the alleged conversation that took place between the prime minister and newly-promoted economic secretary to the Treasury (and former Deloitte management consultant) Chloe Smith.

Apparently the PM thought Chloe was a chartered accountant, due to her background at Deloitte.

After Chloe ‘fessed that she was in fact a consultant, Cameron’s alleged response was simply: “Never mind.”

You couldn’t make it up.

Hopefully it’s not made up. Whatever – it’s a great story.
