Re: Time to sit up and take notice

I attempted to read and digest the article written by Gerry Archer.

(Re:New call for sound ethical policies, Time to sit up and take notice

)I say attempted, as it seemed to be the usual liberal rubbish that is being bandied about of late.

It was full of politically correct phrases, but totally lacking in content which seems to be par for the course nowadays.

Possibly the reason for KPMG’s loss of The Alliance & Leicester audit was a result of their board being unable to comprehend his ‘sustainable (but incomprehensible) philosophies’.

A reversion to sensible and understandable English may well work wonders!
