Taking Stock - Don't blame the dame!

Is there no end to the indignities that poor Dame Sheila Masters has to endure? Unkind spirits seem determined to misinterpret her good intentions, but you would have thought she would have been among friends at the recent Thanksgiving Day lunch at Moorgate Place, organised by the London Society of Chartered Accountants. Alas no. Addressing diners after the turkey and the pecan pie, LSCA chairman Kenneth Crofton-Martin said it was such a pleasure to see so many people at the lunch ‘from the great and the good through to the president of our own institute’. Dame Sheila rewarded this churlishness with one of her most diplomatic smiles and did her best to ignore the gales of quite undeserved laughter.
