Queen Honours Britain's Bankers. How Nice!

Recommended Posts

Sir Mervyn, who has been awarded the Knight Grand Cross, or GBE, which is highest of the two knighthoods, said: "I am honoured to received this award. It is a tribute to hard work and professionalism of the Bank of England staff, whom it has been my privilege to lead for eight years."

The Governor of the Bank of England is awarded a GBE. ;)

Any toilets cleaner at the BoE offices does a more useful job than the banksters running it.

King was awarded the highest order of chivalry, the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire, which entitles the diehard Aston Villa fan to wear a mantle, a hat and a gold collar.

To be worn at each match - including the hat.

Blaming the BoE staff for his own miserable failure.
