Budget 2009: Budget sweepstake – winner revealed
This Budget Day, AccountingWEB.co.uk teamed up with BDO Stoy Hayward and challenged members to guess how many times the chancellor would utter the word ‘downturn’.
We had hundreds of entries, from the conservative (once) to the downright impossible (112 times!).
The lucky winner was Rob Merrell, an accountant at Downham Morris & Co. in Stockport, who guessed correctly that ‘downturn’ would be said four times.
“I thought it was a wind up when I first got the call, I never win anything!” said Rob.
