I know, I know, she doesn\’t write the headlines.

Don\’t expect to find a banker down at bankruptcy court

But that\’s pretty bad when in the first para we have:

As recession bites hard, a more despondent, down-at heel group of people than the debtors at the bankruptcy courts in the Strand would be hard to find. Waiting for their papers were mothers with fractious children, weary old men, an Italian singer, a lorry driver, a decorator, a former City trader, and scores more, all with their stories to tell.

Anyone think it would be fair to call a former City trader a banker?

Further, as is pointed out in the comments:

Sorry, and on a tiny pedantic point….

Don\’t expect to find a banker down at bankruptcy court

That same dreary building on the Strand made administration orders against Lehman Brothers, Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander etc…

The rest of it is a rant about how dare the banks lend money to people.

That\’s what banks are for isn\’t it?
