“generally Scots expect a higher moral standard than a lot of people”

Hmm. Scots are just as moral or immoral as any other nationality. I’m surprised to see such talk on here.
If you were to read the ICAS “Ethical Guide” you may have second thoughts as to moral standards, higher, lower or whatever the case may be, expected in business affairs. I would be delighted to forward a copy to you.

But then again, ICAS members have been complicit in this omnishambles since (-S)DM acquired control of RFC(IL).

Please note that I said “acquired control” and not “purchased”, let alone with his own pocket money.

He (Murray) has been the most toxic individual in business in Scotland in my experience. I guess we differ in that you seem content to consign his behaviour to the past, where i believe dealing with him severely is necessary as a deterrent to anyone else inclined to cause the type of mayhem that he has.
Would Ryan G wish to “consign his (Murray’s) behaviour to the past if he were a member of the MIH Group Pension Fund facing a massive shortfall in its funding arrangements, knowing full well that the man, knighted for “services to business” in Scotland had effectively “done a runner” to France, having ensured his own financial security in advance?

Without wishing to expend too much energy on this ( I lack the patience of Ecobhoy). (my edit!)
Martin…I think that sentiment must apply to the vast majority of posters/contributors on this site.

Ecobhoy…when do you sleep?….you do sleep, don’t you?

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…?
