Sign of the times for bankers

By Nuala McKeever

You gotta love the Judge in Ohio who told a woman driver, who'd mounted the pavement in her car to get past a school bus, that she'd have to stand at a large intersection wearing a big sign around her neck reading: "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus"!

This could be the way forward.

Imagine, bankers forced to live on benefits and wear signs reading, "Only idiots sell mortgages to people who can't pay them back, simply to make huge profits in the short term with no thought as to the dreadful consequences of such greed when their unsustainable bubble bursts".

Yeah, it'd need a big sign, but sure, it's not like they'd have to carry it anywhere.

I mean, they're on benefits and everyone knows people on benefits are too busy swanning around their palatial abodes, laughing at us taxpayers for funding their wildly luxurious spare room, to go anywhere. Don't they?
