In a statement issued this morning, the College explained that a review carried out after tea yesterday afternoon concluded that in the post pandemic world, most of its staff will continue to work from home. The need for office space is therefore limited to three meeting rooms and a kitchenette.
VetSurgeon.org understands that as a result, negotiations are already well advanced between the College and the owners of Ugland House in the Cayman Islands (pictured right) over the sale of one floor of the building, which is also home to 20,000 companies based on the tax-efficient island.
RCVS spokesperson Flora Olip said: “This move makes all sorts of sense. It represents a considerable cost-saving over our London premises and it puts the College at the very centre of the global veterinary community.
RCVS CEO Lizzie Lockett was last seen browsing the beachwear section of www.harrods.com.

And the considerable reserves will be safe from tax. Double win
A career in PR beckons.................
Surprised Vice Chairman Pria Lofol did not take advantage of recent SpaceX developments to pursue loftier ambitions . . . RCVS oversight from the moon could only be considered truly global. Real estate there is cheap and cheese available a plenty.
Crikey - Nick McG - you're still alive?! Good to hear from you. And to think, all this started because of you! But I think my PR days are behind me now, especially since I seem to be enjoying a little success moonlighting as a youtuber these days ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fGIlXziKoU
Surely it is April Fools’ Day.It would make a nice trip for Disciplinary Committee proceedings.
April Fools! No doubt.
I think this is outrageous. I am outraged. I mean, I haven't even been on my pre-beach diet yet.
I was wondering where this would sit on the outrageometer ;) Not so high as 'fees to increase by 150%'.
So far I have had no one on the phone in tears, so yep, a bit below that one....
