The Diary would like to warn readers to hide any illegal contraband they might have is stashed safely away from Group 300 chief executive Chris Batten.
Before entering financial services, Batten served in the army and was involved in undercover drugs operations while stationed in Belize in Central America.
One of the most memorable operations apparently involved a one-ton bale of cannabis which was to be dropped from an aircraft into an incinerator.
Batten's unit decided to leave the bale locked up in a police cell overnight to keep it safe. Unfortunately, on their return they found guards laying strewn in their path and dazed prisoners staggering round in a green haze.
When the officers entered the cell, half the bale had disappeared in a puff of smoke.
The Diary would not want to take any credit for the rebranding of Pointon York's Sipp business that has seen the company's acronym change from PYSS to PY Sipp Solutions.
This Diary presumes this has nothing to do with an email it sent to the company's PR office telling them they must be “taking the Pointon York Sipp Solutions”.
