At last — a useful role for bankers

According to Miriam Lord, Parliamentary sketch-writer for the Irish Times, the Irish Labour Party has a policy on big bankers. It is, she writes that “They should be recycled and made into pork pies for the working man”.

Now there’s an interesting idea. Personally I think that, if boiled with pepper, a few carrots and a clove or two of garlic, many of them would also make a nourishing soup.

Fact: I don’t much care for pork pies. But then I don’t care much for bankers either.
