Project Merlin

Recommended Posts

The chosen title of this so called deal with the banks made me chuckle.

Merlin the Wizard.

The conjurer.

Are they taking the piss or do they have a sense of humour. ?

Maybe they have something up their sleeve? :D

The name "Merlin" derives ultimately from the Welsh Myrddin, the name of the bard Myrddin Wyllt, one of the chief sources for the later legendary figure. Geoffrey of Monmouth Latinized the name to Merlinus in his works; the medievalist Gaston Paris suggests that Geoffrey chose the form Merlinus rather than the regular Merdinus to avoid a resemblance to the Anglo-Norman word merde, for faeces.

Perhaps we should all refer to it as project Merdin?

We have gone from Miracles to Merlin.

How about good old fashioned hard work for a change?

No sorry, Merlin is a fitting title for anything related to the Witch Doctors of London who conjure up money from nothing.

Apparently, Merlin was a Cambion - the offspring of a mortal woman and a supernatural being.

No doubt Erranta will be along soon to point out the similarities to Jesus Christ and the Nephlim, and suggest why Merlin might have sent the knights of the round table off on a quest to find the holy grail or san graal.

I'm not sure what this has to do with bankers.

No, it's blood.

Whether the blood is drunk, or inherited, is another question.

Merlin the Wizard.

Wizard, as in Wizard of Oz.

Gold, Silver and economic policy and all that.

The Wizard was proved to be an illusionist.

Surely no co-incidence.

All very esoteric.

It would have been too obvious if they had called it Project Mervyn.

More likely that the chinless wonder Bullingdon Boy intern on work experience taking notes in the Treasury office misheard what Osborne said in the conference call. He'll laugh about it in 20 years when he's CEO of RBS.
