Congratulations to Accountancy Age for their misleading headline today.
On their front page, in a nice big blue box, they state that 65.7% of the ICAEW voted for the merger.
How can that be, if only 44% bothered to vote?
Speaking as a qualified accountant myself, I would say that the correct headline should read 29% voted in favour.
Still, why let facts get in the way of a good headline?
I am sure that there are a few of you reading this who, for a modest fee, would be happy to provide AA with a remedial course on basic mathematics and stats.
Those of you who wish to point out the error on their front page, should address your comments to email@example.com
