Gizz’a Job!

I do, therefore, have the following questions to ask and would request that you reply taking into consideration the interests of all stakeholders, who you say are now your concern:

Why has the FRC not engaged on CBCR?
When will the FRC engage on CBCR?
How will the FRC engage on this issue when it does so?
Given that this issue has gained prominence from within civil society how will representatives from civil society with expertise in this area be integrated into the FRC’s processes when considering this issue?

Kachinggg!

  1. IFRS8 Operating Segments.
    Any segment that generates more than 10% of revenues or 10% of profits or accounts for 10% of assets has to be reported separately. A country that accounts for a trivial amount of each does and can be grouped with other countries to make up a segment.
    I assume that the FRC is well aware of the IFRS – but is Murphy?

    ” lovely, lovely Ruby Tandoh”

    You are surely joking. A tuppence ha’penny man fearing anorexic feminist.

    She joins the list of people who have announced that they are ‘lesbian’ as a way of avoiding sex.

    Sorry you may be right. I don’t watch the programme and I have no idea who the woman is. As a superficial (and no doubt therefore) predatory man, I judged her merely on the criterion of whether, were I a builder whom she passed, I would shout “show us yer tits love”.

    Regardless, I admire her way with words.

  4. Such is his lack of self-awareness, and so the impermeability of his ego’s carapace, that I think he can’t see his own egotism and self-interest. He is not being hypocritical in his own eyes because he sees himself as a selfless champion of socialist justice. He must thrive – with grants, union consultancy, etc – for him to slay the beast of tax injustice and so open the way to socialism of some undefined variety.

    Sorry for the banality of this observation, but the Murphatollah draws it forth.

  5. Given that this issue has gained prominence from within civil society
    No, no it really hasn’t.
    Love the way he paints himself as part if ‘civil society’, with the inference that all who disagree are by definition uncivil. Wanker.

  6. “Given that this issue has gained prominence from within civil society”

    translation:

    “Given that I and a handful of similarly-obsessed mental defectives simply will not shut the fuck up about it”

    It’s even worse – he isn’t just part of ‘civil society’ (translate as ‘people who think like me’) but it’s most eloquent mouthpiece. The man’s ego is boundless….

  8. “how will representatives from civil society with expertise in this area be integrated into the FRC’s processes when considering this issue?”
    Well we know they cannot give the job to him, he has no expertise as he repeatedly lets people know.

  9. Here is an open letter as I have also written to the FRC

    Dear Windy Miller (or whatever your name is).

    Richard Murphy? Don’t touch him a barge pole. Not even with the barge pole that you use to stir shit and move decomposing corpses. As well as being a pompous windbag with endless opinions backed up with no knowledge, the man is a complete and utter cunt.

    Yours sincerely

    I used to know Ruby Tandoh before she was famous.

    She is very, very clever.

    Didn’t really realise she was so good at the whole words thing. She was genuinely gifted at maths/science. Wanted to be a research scientist at one point. Would easily have made it I reckon – I know people who wound up with Cambridge PhDs in the field she considered going into, and at sixth form she was light-years ahead of them. I was disappointed she wound up studying philosophy (UCL I think, so still a decent education if not terribly practical).

    She could certainly have become famous, or at least renowned within the right circles, for her brain-fruit, regardless of what route she took. Instead she’s become famous for her modelling and baking. As a self-declared feminist I’m sure she’d appreciate the irony – but that’s reality TV for you.

    As for attacking a guy for not giving up his main source of income right after being offered a pay rise… I don’t think that is a particularly “lovely” thing to do, myself. Might opt for “immature” myself.

    1. Gossiping is crappy and I probably shouldn’t be gossiping about her anyway. “I knew X before he/she was famous” is especially crap gossip because a) it’s pretentious, b) the fact they weren’t famous at the time merely indicates you’re not important enough to know people once they’re actually famous, c) the pre-public period of life is a stretch where one might hope for a bit of privacy, d) it’s egregiously crappy when – beyond a strangely well-watched reality show and later, now and then, the pages of the Mail Online and the Guardian – the person’s not even all that famous anyway.

    2. Think that was pre-Bakeoff so was actually being paid to model on grounds of looks, not just someone trying to cash in on her temporary fame following the telly appearance. She’s very striking in person, distinctive, and has the right sort of body for that kind of work, so didn’t surprise me, even though tbh – like many, more successful models – she’s not really all that “pretty”.

    Unlike several more authentically famous people I’ve met, she didn’t look any worse … or better, or different in any way whatsoever … in the flesh than onscreen or in photos. Is that what makes “model” “good looks” different to “celeb” “good looks” maybe?

  12. uch is his lack of self-awareness, and so the impermeability of his ego’s carapace, that I think he can’t see his own egotism and self-interest.

    It wasn’t until the third sentence that I realised you were talking about Murphy and not the man from this cookery show.

    Anyway, “man moves with company to new premises” is apparently a terrible thing. She has foregone part of that £7m for a probable deal in the low millions instead, while gaining admiring glances from her peers for signalled virtue.

    Anyway, Murphy to be a shock replacement judge on the new show? His candid opinions would be a revelation to the viewing public.

  13. As for attacking a guy for not giving up his main source of income right after being offered a pay rise… I don’t think that is a particularly “lovely” thing to do, myself. Might opt for “immature” myself.

    Especially given the ‘manchild’ jibe. Grow up, love.

  14. I had to google Ruby Tandoh. Just a few more years and I’ll be completely disconnected from popular culture and eminently qualified to be a high court judge.

  15. Yeah me too, Jim. She looks like a bunny-boiler. It still amazes me, although I suppose it shouldn’t, that such a huge proportion of ‘news’ in the UK concerns people making cakes or dancing or behaving like a prize collection of bell-ends on some fucking awful “reality” show. It’s really depressing.

    For an ex pat who doesn’t watch British TV or stay up to date with the slebs and sport stars, I imagine a huge swathe of UK news sites must be utterly incomprehensible. Who who who? And worse, why should I care? That it is all mixed up with “proper” news is rather silly really. One of the few things that the FT and Economist generally get right.
