General election accountant candidates

General election accountant candidates

Didn't find your answer?

We're looking for accountants who are running in this years' General Election. We already have a list built up but are wondering if we have missed any names. If you know of someone, an accountant in industry or practice, or indeed retired, a trainee, a bookkeeper - then please comment below and let us know their name and party!

Gee

I'm ICPA ... I'll slit my throat, now, rather than be associated with the likes of GO.

Hornets

At risk of stirring up a hornets' nest we have had for the past few years a Lord Chancellor (the cabinet minister responsible for the courts of justice) who does not hold any legal qualification or experience.

He has been very unpopular with lawyers & his actions have been repeatedly ruled unlawful by the courts.

However there is no requirement for government ministers to hold any qualification (as far as I am aware).  In practice it is almost always the case that government ministers are either serving MPs or Lords.

Think you need to remove the "o" from accountant to best describe the chancellor

David, I think their qualification is their political degree. Jack of all trades, master of none.
