You will recall that PIEGATE reared its ugly head yesterday when the remarkable food and beverage bill incurred by Duff & Phelps was picked up by the bold mick and other commenters.
mick has donned the sleuth’s hat and overcoat, and has been trying to get into the meat of the issue.
He has been hot on the pie trail….and I will leave him to tell you the rest!
Thanks again mick!
NEW INFO TO COME TO LIGHT FROM YESTERDAYS DEBATE ONLINE ABOUT THE BLACK HOLE IN THE CREDITORS’ REPORT CONCERNING EXPENDITURE AND THE FACT THAT MONIES IN DOES NOT MATCH MONIES GOING OUT
Who supplies the pies?
Mcghee’s – Glasgow’s finest and Mister Singh’s supplies the curry ones – mouth watering curry pies spiced up to keep you healthy and hot on a cold winter’s night.
Also I had a chat with the press office at BDO in London and forwarded the article.
Out of all the people I called the BDO were the most obliging and they gave me a email to send all the info from the site, so that’s progress!
I also called Pieminister http://www.pieminister.co.uk/ as it was brought to light that they might be the pie suppliers. Also I asked if their owners were investors in RFC and they said no.
So that’s something I will look in to.
At the moment I am waiting to hear from Mister (we won’t say for legal reasons) from D+P.
Although there is great humour in this article there is also a more serious side to it as any money out under the stewardship of D&P could be a major breach of duty and could amount to hoodwinking small creditors which in turn could lead to job losses.
I also called Ibrox but no one was available for comment although the girl on the phone thought it was a joke as football and pies seem to go together like Stan and Ollie and Morecambe and Wise.
That’s me just off the phone to D+P in London.
They are going to review the figure and get back to me via email. If not I’ve to call back late afternoon tomorrow.
Also yesterday we had lots of pie jokes. Here are a few of the 1s a liked the best
The balance could be stock, the pies have been frozen not eaten just like the accounts
Are you suggesting that D&P froze the pies so that they could be TUPE’d over to the newco? Have the pies agreed to this?
If it has all gone in pies then that is a lot of dough
Pizza nonsense really
I’ve thought for a while that most of the Ibrox Tale is complete mince
Mick, WE DEMAND PIE TRANSPARENCY ! who are these pie people?
what rate of VAT was paid on the pies? (that’s a serious issue)
Green’s promises are like pie crusts – made to be broken 🙂
Piegate 3 the final bite! Coming soon! Hopefully!
