The saga continues...
The shock departure comes after another emergency EGM was called today by the RFU Council following a damning report by Judge Jeff Blackett into the quality of biscuits being served with tea at HQ.
The 58-strong council heard evidence that for the last 3 months Mrs Micklewhite has, in a misguided attempt to stay within budget, been serving Asda own-brand digestive biscuits rather than the Fortnum & Mason variety to which council members have become accustomed.
It is understood that Mrs Micklewhite’s fate was decided by a cabal of disgruntled council members over port and cigars at a West London Chinese restaurant on Sunday evening.
It is believed that Mrs Micklewhite’s role will now be performed by acting CEO, Martyn Thomas.
