Just a quick note for nervous WPP employees who might be wondering
what to call their newly knighted boss, Sir Martin Sorrell. He revealed:
’Martin Sorrell will do fine as long as you’re kneeling at the time.’
(For our American readers, kneeling before a knight is an ancient
British tradition and absolutely not a reference to Monica Lewinsky.)
But will Sorrell be using the title in his professional life? ’I will
use the title as long as it delivers enhanced shareholder value and
intimidates opposing batsmen or bowlers,’ he quipped.
