Pardon me while I throw up ...

... with enthusiasm ... all over the people who think it reasonable for Mr. Stephen "Piggy" Hester to get paid £9.6 million for sorting out the Royal Bank of Scotland for a year or two.



Has he ever run anything long enough to find out if he's any good at sorting out disasters?


Pray tell me, Oh Great and Good of the Land, is it really impossible to get anyone competent to do the job, which is not nuclear physics, for a reasonable salary?

I'm sorry. I don't believe you. There is not one sane person in Britain who believes you. There is not one sane person in Britain who does not believe that this sort of rubbish has gone on for too long.

There is not one sane person in Britain who is not angry about this giant organised piss-take, which we see taking place everywhere we look - parliament, industry everywhere - at our expense.

I really must calm down.
