What a lovely way to put itDecember 20, 2010 Tim WorstallBusiness11 CommentsSir Philip Green (born 15 March 1952) is a Monacan, British-born businessman with executive positions in Tina Green\’s companies, including the Arcadia Group. What\’s even better is that it\’s actually true, too. previousGosh, this is interesting from Mr. MurphynextThe sound of wind and fury, signifying nothing 11 thoughts on “What a lovely way to put it” pete December 20, 2010 at 6:40 pm My in-law was pretty emphatic about :Monegasque when it came to nationality. georgesdelatour December 20, 2010 at 8:53 pm I’m sure he is a patriot, and can recite the words to the Hymne Monégasque by heart. dearieme December 20, 2010 at 10:07 pm If she were to sack him and divorce him, though, it’d be an occasion for wry smiles. And the odd belly-laugh. Gary December 20, 2010 at 10:19 pm No-one’s doubting the legal accuracy, but the idea that Tina is Philip’s boss is bullshit. ifabloke December 20, 2010 at 11:06 pm As a shareholder, Tina is no more Philip’s boss than Legal & General is Marc Bolland’s boss. On the other hand, as CEO of the company Philip’s main duty is to his shareholders, of which Tina is one. john b December 20, 2010 at 11:30 pm I’m not convinced the Wiki entry is true – I’ve not seen any reports (or dug any up when looking just now) that Green is a naturalised Monaco citizen. john b December 20, 2010 at 11:33 pm …especially as Monaco requires naturalised citizens to give up their previous citizenship. If Green were no longer a UK citizen, he’d no longer be eligible to be known as Sir Philip. Gary December 21, 2010 at 12:01 am @ifabloke If you can appoint me or sack me you are my boss. Tina has a controlling interest, L&G do not. She is supposedly his boss, yet in reality the very idea is laughable. Martin December 21, 2010 at 12:13 am What John B said. Surreptitious Evil December 21, 2010 at 9:41 am If Green were no longer a UK citizen, he’d no longer be eligible to be known as Sir Philip. Strictly, having already received “the accolade”, he’ll retain the title. If a UK order that normally carries a knighthood is received by a foreigner, they are just presented with the badge and don’t get tapped with Daddy’s sword therefore don’t get the title. cuffleyburgers December 21, 2010 at 3:27 pm monagasque shurely… Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
