    Thankfully he died about 15 minutes into it, although it was so bad he could maybe have acted the hole way through, dead, and done a better job of the "plot"
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

      Which brings us back to Mr Upton.

          Can’t help thinking this lot should have done a bit of research before naming their firm.

            Something fishy going on there. Three of the 4 directors also run Thorntons Accounting at the same address.

              Both born in December
              Both specialising in working with IT consultants
              Both unqualified ('one' of the Darren's has been kicked out of ACCA for 5 years)
              Both members of contractor UK
              Both good at getting things ('one' got contractor's money while 'the other' got clients from his old employer/Dynamo)
              Both wear glasses. Check Darren's LinkedIn profile cartoon picture. Weird how he has a cartoon profile pic. Interestingly the Fox Bartfield website has recently taken down all the cartoon pictures of the staff.

              Population of Leeds is only around 500k. Probably 250k when thinking about just the men. I guess in a pool of 250k people it could just be coincidence that they are identical twins (rather than the same people)?


              (Chance of identical twins is actually quite high, 1 in 250 births, so there could theoretically be 1,000 contractor accountants all called Darren living in Leeds.)

                Another thought, Darren describes himself as owner of Fox Bartfield on Linked In. However if you check Companies House he is not a director which seems a little bit strange (I know shareholder and director mean different things). I wonder what is preventing Darren from becoming a director? A disqualification perhaps?

                If these people are genuinely two different people I unreservedly apologize for my previous 2 posts. And it just appears that Darren is just extremely unlucky to share similar birth details and career history and geography and spectacles with a totally unrelated Darren.

                Alternatively, in chasing those big entrepreneur bucks, did Darren return to self employment in haste? Probably should have just stayed employed and no one would have been any wiser.

                I'm sure there is a simple explanation for all of this? Right?

                    "absolutely identical"?

                    Please provide evidence. All you have stated is they were both born in the same month (and provided no proof to back that up)

                      Fair enough, I would like to retract that wording and replace it with the word "similar" if that is OK with the word police.
