Saw this rather amusing anecdote on the BBC website about the bank bailout announced today. I’m not sure where I stand on the issue but can appreciate this:
Dear RBS, LTSB and HBOS,It appears that your accounts with us
are in arrears, and you are now overdrawn by Â£37bn. Please be advised
that we will be charging you interest of Â£200m per day.
You will also be charged Â£50m for this letter, this covers any admin, and falls under the ‘serves you right’ legislation.Failure
to repay will give us no option but to remove all fat cats from your
company, and we will also reclaim any houses & cars from them.
Yours Sincerely,The British Public
