Coming to this a few months late provides some... interesting

Perhaps not. I think the near-ruination of the world economy, the
near-bankrupting of numerous rich states, and now the hilarious RBS
epic computing disaster and long-running but now-exploding LIBOR rigging
scandal put a slightly different tone on things.

It's not only a quiz show host to figured that Bob Diamond shouldn't be
running a major bank. It's the chairman of the Bank of England (oh, the
FSA too).
