David Attenborough is the CEO of Tabcorp.
Attenborough is not the animal wildlife man – that’s a different bloke.
This one is a former chemist who has presided over the Luxbet the debacle, the $71 million loss Sun Bet disasters, the $200 000 bribe paid to the Cambodian Prime Minister, and the $45 million fine that the company copped for money laundering corporate crimes.
The bloke earns $4.5 million a year.
Today he announced his resignation, effective next year, telling the ASX and the shareholder that the time was right.
If you believe that, you believe in fairies, and I have a bridge to sell you.
Tabcorp is about to announce a massive loss.
Attenborough presided over it, and if you subscribe to the buck stopping at the top theory, is responsible for it too.
We all just walk away from near $5 million a year jobs because we feel in our water that it’s a good idea don’t we.
And pink pigs fly.
