‘.Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary …’

———-
May it be as significant and joyful to you and the Mrs as the wedding day itself was.

==========================================================================

JC…thank you indeed for such a touching sentiment.

My friend, at my very sedate stag night said with the utmost wisdom :” it is not the getting married that is difficult…it is the being and staying married that is difficult.”

OT but thank you.


About the The Scottish Football Monitor
The main “raison d’etre” of the States of Jersey and its “financial vehicles”, is that being a tax haven, or more accurately a secrecy jurisdiction, allows mainland based companies, like MIH, to set up covert and secretive trusts, shielded by Jersey law, which cannot be forced to disclose information, just as under the Swiss banking laws of confidentiality.

Murray, and his “professional” advisors, knew exactly what they wanted to do from day one.

The fact that they could do so is aided and abetted by the UK Government, and in particular, the City of London.

Back to the old adage “Follow the money”. I presume that EBT schemes could have been implemented through an upfront London financial institution, so why use a Jersey based one? Simply because it inserted a layer or anonymity into any financial transactions, precautions much loved by these paragons of virtue, the MBB’s of this world. Isn’t it peculiar that such a fine, moral upstanding Scottish institution, whose MD at the time insists that everything was perfectly legal and above board, apparently thought that it required such an arrangement? (my edit)

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One

StevieBCDecember 22, 2017 at 18:29Guess that the CoS result could /should trigger a couple of events in the short-term;– King resigns from RIFC & – the auditors Campbell Dallas ‘do walking away’ ?You would think…?  +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Their reputation is on the line. I would think ICAS practice regulation are keeping a close watch on this one._______________________________________________________
ICAS Practice Regulation only get upset when recalcitrant, (no, not “concomitant”) members, like me, fail to return meaningless checklists or forms in time.
Please believe me…I have “got form” in this area…. 01
Only when a serious complaint from “members of the public” is received, would any notice be taken…and minimum action result…
Please remember, that ICAS members, at least 20 in number, have been involved in this whole RFC/MIH/TRFC/TRIFC omnishambles over the last 20 years or so….and….yup…a big fat zilch from the “public”…
I rest my case….


The Lost Voice of the Armageddon Virus
“….(the phrase I had used was taken from a description of Falstaff in ‘Henry IV’ ( apologies, Essex, for a the reference to Shakespoke. Nice to have you back, btw!)…”
Good morning JC(e)…I was wondering when you would resurrect my old “bete-noire” Shakingspeare…19
Delighted to see that you are all the others are still banging away at the shame that masquerades as governance in Scottish football…

….”My initial thought was that the ‘interims’ were back of a fag packet stuff: start with a minimal ‘profit figure’…then work backwards and plug in the difference into ‘Revenue’….” Shhhhh….now everyone knows how we beancounters work…”There was speculation that it was cobbled together by King, with the assistance of a ‘young staff member’….”…possibly another newly/recently qualified CA…searching for his career path to glory (not!)…090909


THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
Saddened to see yet another fellow CA, instrumental in the whole MIH/RFC tax planning, aka tax avoidance/evasion/EBT scenario, squirming in court under cross examination. Just how many CAs have been involved in helping David Murray carry out his destruction of Scottish Football and his own publicly quoted business, but still leaving him a millionaire, relatively unscathed by his own misdeeds, for which he was ennobled? 1111


THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
Good morning all…haven’t posted a comment for a few months…has anything happened.?..especially in the RIFC omnishambles 151515…?
