Business as usual
Why should the fact that you were chair of a financial institution which failed and has had to be recapitalised by the state rule you out of immediately becoming chair of another company? Eh? Richard Burrows' appointment as chair at BAT, having only stood down from the Bank of Ireland a month or so back, seems to be more evidence that it's back to business as usual (At least Andy Hornby waited a few months before getting a new job). I take my hat off to Standard Life for at least querying the appointment.
