Ross Midgley - Still at ACCA
We at AABA know that ACCA is a frequent
visitor to our web site and on occasions our items also form part of the
discussions and paranoid at ACCA. Unlike ACCA, we also believe in freedom
of information and freely publish information. Since the publication of our
item (click here
) about the departure of ACCA finance director
Ross Midgley has been in touch to say that he is still at the Association
though wearing a different hat.
Midgley wrote, " I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I am still very much here
- fanfare or no fanfare. I am simply moving - at my own choice, after
eight years as FD - into a policy role, especially in relation to regulation,
where I am sure we can continue to cross swords! I was fascinated
to see how rapidly your web site transformed me from establishment lackey
to dissident. Perhaps you would now reinstate me in the former role
by publishing this note".
We also published Midgley's 23 page memo on the financial problems at ACCA,
but he has remained silent on that. Now we wonder whether Midgley has any
clout to persuade the ACCA to be open. Its in-house rag continues to be censored
and rarely publishes anything critical of the ACCA's controllers. So come
on Ross show us what you are made of!!
