It would appear that
Bexley councillor Munir Malik has been thrown off the board of the Cooperative
Bank for claiming to be an Accountant when he wasn’t or possibly he was at one
time but was no longer after being declared bankrupt. It all seems rather murky
at the moment but apparently he has been suspended by the Labour party too for
bringing the party into disrepute.
Oh well. At least Munir may have some accountancy qualifications lurking away somewhere which is one up on the bank’s former chairman Paul Flowers who famously ran it with no monetary qualifications whatsoever.
Note: The Daily Mail Online later published a simple summary of events.
