Phone Home

Tomorrow, in case you had all forgotten, is the day that the result of the ICAEW merger vote will be announced.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the meeting.

However, I wonder if there is anyone who is attending who would be willing to call me with the result as and when it is announced?

I will then post the result here, as soon as I know it.

If there is anyone willing to volunteer to call, please could you email me and I will let you know my contact number.

I would be very grateful.

Thanks for your help and support on this.



  1. A report of the Battle of Moorgate Place, October 25, 2005:

    Forward, the Old Brigade!
    Was a soul undismay'd?
    Yet the wise members knew
    Someone had blunder'd:
    Their's not to make reply,
    Their's not to reason why,
    Their's but to do and die:
    Into the valley of Death
    Strode the horde sunder'd

    Original masterpiece 1854 - Alfred, Lord Tennyson
    Memorializing Events in the Battle of Balaclava, October 25, 1854.

  2. Ken,

  3. Ken,

    Accountancy Magazine could'nt even calculate the margin correctly.

  4. When can their glory fade?
    O the great stand they made
    Not that they blunder'd.
    Honour the stand they made!
    Honour the True Brigade:
    Nurse All the wounded.
