Comment on LNS – A Summary by essexbeancounter.

I have detected a distinct note of scepticism, bordering on the cynical, being attached to the public pronouncements of Paul Murray, acting in his (whatever) official capacity, of TRFC.
May I remind members of this glorious blog that the aforementioned Mr Murray is a CA and a member of that illustrious body ICAS.
I beg that he be accorded the respect that both his official and personal capacity demand.
Oops…here comes another letter from the Institute….

LNS – A Summary
Homunculus 16th December 2015 at 9:21 pm #As a Celtic supporter I think it is very important that the supporters of other clubs lead the way in contacting their own clubs and letting them know what the fans in general feel about recent developments.
Homunculus…may I use your suggestion that “other clubs lead the way in contacting their won clubs” and refer them to the approach taken by Amnesty International, who had a campaign of letter writing, whereby members would write to relevant head(s) of state(s) or prime minister(s) to ensure that the relevant matters were brought to their immediate (hopefully!) attention.
The relevant “form” letters were available to download from their website.
May I (respectfully) suggest that SFM may adopt a similar approach?
I would welcome such letter(s)…especially if drafted by the “Court Correspondent”… aka John Clark(e)

Dear Houston,  Oh great wee  toon  aside the Weir,  Yer hoosies there are awfy dear,  Just like yer drink in The Inn or the Hounds,  To live doon  here will cost you pounds. 
Sorry JC, couldn’t resist it….
Christyboy…I have to say that JC(e)’s perennial favour towards that Shakingspear character would probably be supplanted by my own leaning towards my late father’s favourite…McGonnigale…who would be undoubtedly proud of your own creative verse… 21

LNS – A Summary
For those fans writing to their club by e-mail, I would wager that there will be no response due to ‘traffic’. I wrote to the CEO by recorded delivery and asked for his signature and a reply.
AOB and John Clark(e) and others…
Whilst some of us “old timers” may not use email…and disappearing off into the ether…never to be acknowledged…07
On a “point of information”, those adopting the traditional practice of sending surface mail via Royal Mail Recorded Delivery may be assured that this is a resolute waste of time, money and effort…I have this on the best of authority from the senior management of the main sorting office for NE London/West Essex.
“Recorded Delivery” mail as such is simply included in the First Class mail for that day and whilst the legend “Signed for” appears on the official labels, in all manner of operations, most of such mail is not “signed for” and is not “tracked”…given rise to the lack of response encountered so often from these bodies.
The only way to ensure that such mail is indeed “signed for” is to send it via “Special Delivery”, guaranteed to be delivered by either 09.00 hours or 13.00 hours the next day…at a cost of approximately £6.50…but may be tracked along every stage of the process.
Yes…a real bummer of a cost, but used judiciously, may be far better than the less than transparent service offered by Royal Mail.08

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….

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…?
