Banker rhymed with canker

FT: The bankers who wouldn’t say sorry: a cautionary tale

Sound comment in the style of Hilaire Belloc. Would be much funnier but for the subject.

Superb. Nothing more to say, really.

“It wasn’t us,” was their refrain.
The regulators are to blame.
They failed to prick our growing bubble.
They are the cause of all this trouble!
And China too, and central bankers,
Who failed to give us decent anchors.

Yep. A bit like a repeat rapist blaming the police for not stopping him.

Wouldn't say sorry? 'Surfeit begets insolence when prosperity comes to a knave'. (Theognis, 545BC)
