Taking Stock - No so much of an upright citizen.

What’s in a name? It’s a topic that has been debated for centuries. People spend years tracing their genealogy hoping for a trace of royal blood. Others make less endearing discoveries. TS discovered this week that names might not hold that much credibility after all when chartered accountant Mr D G Upright of Stoke on Trent was found rather wanting of his name. Given that official surnames came about with the creation of the Doomsday Book and surnames stem from the profession of the man of the house, we assume Mr Upright’s predecessors were the first in a long line of respectable citizens, bookkeepers perhaps! Unfortunately Mr Upright, in an English ICA disciplinary tribunal, was reprimanded, fined and directed to pay costs of #2,500 for ‘obtaining confidential documents by misrepresentation and disclosing confidential information to a third party’.
