On the Fred Goodwin superinjunction:
The mistress of Sir Fred Goodwin was promoted twice while he was chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland,
Sadly this story is a lot more boring than I\’d originally thought.
John Hemming, the backbench Lib Dem MP who announced the existence of Sir Fred’s injunction to the Commons in March, said: “The question about Fred Goodwin’s management of RBS is whether it was managed in stakeholders’ interests or run as a personal fiefdom. That his mistress was promoted twice while he was chief executive is something the FSA needs to look at.”
Partly because there\’s not all that much interesting about someone being promoted twice in a corporate over the years. Happens all the time, whether or not they\’re bedding the boss. But it\’s boring more because it turns out that it wasn\’t a bird in risk management, those people who are supposed to constrain the CEO. Rather, someone over on the soft side of the business, where they put the pushy PAs who clamour for advancement.
It also emerged that a married footballer who had an affair with Imogen Thomas, a former reality television contestant, is suing Twitter after a user of the website anonymously revealed his identity.
The lawyers must be loving this, all these high paying gigs coming their way at the same time.
Had an email from one ex-banking Chairman feeling rather left out, complaining that he seems to have been the only one without a love child: or mistress stashed over in the back offices.
You can find out which actor/comedian likes BDSM over on Twitter. Didn\’t make me any the wiser as I\’d never heard of him, but looking at a photo one can understand the tarts are happy to present their bums to be smacked rather than anything else: face only a Mother could love.
