Taking Stock - Boozing blamed for ACCA loss.

A recent eight-team pub quiz involving two Manchester student societies sponsored by Harrison Willis ended in controversy. In a finish of quite unbelievable tension (allegedly) ‘The Untouchables’ – an ACCA team bolstered by ‘latecomers and ringers’ – was pipped by just one point for the title by ‘Team X’ – a CIMA committee team. Though gracious in defeat (of sorts), one ACCA team member blamed their reverse on too many free drinks vouchers supplied by CIMA and on not being able to phone their mothers during the crucial picture round. Taking Stock wonders whether the problem would have been avoided if the two institutes had gone ahead with a merger last year.
