Mainwaring to the rescue.
Gordon Brown wants a return to the old fashioned prudent banking so famously practised at the Walmington-on-Sea branch of Swallows Bank. Are we to expect a whole army of Captain Mainwarings to be called out of retirement to catch the 07:15 from Woking, march to the Isle of Dogs and save our bacon?
Mind you, I suppose it makes more sense for the Captain Mainwarings of the world to be running the financial sector rather than the Private Walkers who have been running it up until now.
