Ever been ripped off by a bank? Then you’ll like this. (And if you’re an Irish, British or American tax payer, you definitely have been ripped off somewhere along the line.) So click play – and enjoy…
The clip is from The Revolution Will Be Televised, a clever TV show.
As for the bankers – They don’t like it up ’em! – as the just departed Clive Dunn used to say as Corporal Jones in Dad’s Army. Who do you think you are kidding? Of course I still watch Dad’s Army.
I should declare an interest. I was once a banker myself. Just a cashier. One customer sticks in my mind – Irish comedian Frank Carson.
He swept in to the bank, a tumbleweed of bonhomie, up to the cashier next to me – who was pregnant.
“When’s the happy day love?” asked Frank.
“Oh Frank,” said she, all demure. “That was months ago.”
He paused. Puzzled. Got it. Scowled. Did his business. Left. Bit like the bankers. Didn’t like it up him.
