Trainee accountant Matt will be fighting off the job offers.

Why men become problem bankers...

The woman at the top of the BBC is a problem banker. Rhona Fairhead.

Brunothecat - 13 Feb 2018 14:07:24 (#4 of 38)

Here we go. She has now resigned, but it seems rather stupid for the BBC to come out with this sort of thing in the circumstances.

There is a huge amount of this stuff, just a brief summary

The chair of the BBC trust has been told she should resign for being "incredibly naive or totally incompetent" over the HSBC tax avoidance scandal.

In an extraordinary clash at the Public Accounts Select Committee, Labour MP Margaret Hodge attacked Rona Fairhead, saying her claims she did not know about what was happening at the bank meant she should not be "the guardian of BBC licence fee payers' money".

You should withhold your licence fee, bruno.

Brunothecat - 13 Feb 2018 14:51:19 (#6 of 38)

As usual, you cut straight to the heart of the matter. Maybe they should put you in charge of the BBC.

SheikYerbouti - 13 Feb 2018 14:54:39 (#7 of 38)

You could shake your fist at me from across La Manche, old man.

Brunothecat - 13 Feb 2018 14:56:58 (#8 of 38)

But I am not interested in you.

You are the one who keeps on with this stuff, quite regardless of what is actually under discussion. You seem to be sitting there shaking your fist, hoping for a fart in your general direction.

Perv.

Keeps on with which stuff? Running the BBC?

machiavelli - 13 Feb 2018 15:18:19 (#10 of 38)

The notion that someone living abroad has no right to an opinion.

AlanII - 13 Feb 2018 15:20:41 (#11 of 38)

If he hasn't got the right to vote he's only one step down to being Johnny Foreigner

SheikYerbouti - 13 Feb 2018 15:31:58 (#12 of 38)

The notion that someone living abroad has no right to an opinion.

Who expressed that view? Poking gentle ridicule is a rather different thing.

machiavelli - 13 Feb 2018 15:37:48 (#13 of 38)

It's just that a certain cast of characters keep reminding Bruno that he lives in France.

SheikYerbouti - 13 Feb 2018 15:43:23 (#14 of 38)

Only when he's in danger of bursting a blood vessel about the shortcomings of the BBC. Its a public service.

machiavelli - 13 Feb 2018 15:44:23 (#15 of 38)

It's almost as if the people who employ that device don't have a counter-argument.

SheikYerbouti - 13 Feb 2018 15:47:21 (#16 of 38)

Is it?

Bonusy - 13 Feb 2018 15:59:30 (#17 of 38)

Does sound like it

ChankNolen - 13 Feb 2018 18:58:41 (#18 of 38)

The counter-argument in this case of course is Margaret Fucking Hodge.

Brunothecat - 13 Feb 2018 19:28:25 (#19 of 38)

Hodge was responsible for HSBC colluding in what was at the time described as 'industrial scale' tax evasion?

Do post the evidence.

Something not to like about tax evasion?
