DIAMONDS NOT FOREVER
Diamonds (Bob that is) are obviously not forever. Can we have our money back please Mr Diamond. You can keep your reputation as long we can have the past oooh..five years bonuses. Ditto the bonuses of the traders who fixed the rates. My ex (head of gilt trading at RBS) always lectured me about how banking was a honorable profession. It was never honorable. And how his job was to screw the bank of england. I thought he was joking. He wasn't.
