Response to Hey, Andrew - that Barclay's lunch group blow out at Petrus
they did try to charge it to expenses (I am 99% sure that was the case). It depends on how much money they generated the bank for whatever they were celebrating, i.e. $64,000 is a drop in the ocean compared to the tens of millions they might have earned in profit (but what were they celebrating?). I don't believe that they were fired though? I want to make it clear that I do not know of them "first hand", but that I know of them through someone else (shouldn't really have said that in retrospect).
It still amazes me how much publicity this has generated.
We actually have another forumner that may be better placed to comment upon this directly.
