Eric Daniels honoured as “In-denial guy of the year”

December 17th, 2010

This is from today’s Financial Times:-

Eric Daniels, come on down! Unabashed by public fury against banks, the Lloyds boss recently called on the government to protect a complex monopoly in UK banking detrimental to consumers and small businesses (I paraphrase somewhat). Mr Daniels has much in common with a French aristocrat, who, as the tumbril bears him away, wonders aloud where his regular carriage is and why the coachman is diverting via the Place De La Guillotine.

Extracted from the FT’s “Bungling in the corporate jungle“. Jonathan Guthrie, after your SFLGS disaster, all is forgiven.

  1. The arrogance of these damn people never ceases to amaze me.

  2. Love the ‘Dead end’ sign reflected in the window!

  3. Did the 2009 award go to Michael Izza, ICAEW Chief Executive who wrote in the January 2009 issue of ‘Accountancy’: ‘The message that we need to get across is that we stand for the highest professional standards: because of us, people can do business with confidence. It’s a fantastic statement in good times and it’s a vitally important one in tough times’?
