ALTHOUGH I clearly cannot speak for Andrew Lloyd Webber's view of my departure from the Really Useful Group, I feel I must at least correct that which is inaccurate.

1 I did not resign: I was fired.

2 Andrew Lloyd Webber was a board member of the Really Useful Group for the duration of its 'public' life. In 1986, shortly after the company was floated, at his request he became a non-executive director. During 1988, after the departure of Brian Brolly, again at his request and with the full support of the board, he once again became an executive director. My departure was in 1990 and therefore there was no board meeting at which I would have voted for or against him 'being on the board'.
