Falling Down

Mr. Edmund Blackadder, a Georgian butler,  once remarked that he could:

…hear the sound of disemboweling cutlasses being sharpened…

I suspect that Mr. Alistair Darling may be hearing similar sounds before much longer – if he isn’t already! Mr. Gordon Brown will be hearing them too.

The UK Government just has not acted toughly and swiftly enough to address the banking crisis. Especially as they do not seem to have looked too closely at the terms of Sir Fred’s (and by the way, shouldn’t he be stripped of that title too?) settlement package.

The ongoing economic and banking saga may yet reach government toppling proportions.

Jenga, anyone?
