People in the UK may have seen the headlines about that guy, somebody Diamond, from Barclays losing his bonus for cheating - something to do with fixing lending rates. (I confess I didn't read the articles and therefore don't fully understand what he did.)

Anyway, one of the newspapers (I think it was the Mirror, but it might have been the Sun) today has as its headline, "Sign on you crazy Diamond", calling for Diamond to resign.

Which I thought was rather clever.

ETA: His name turns out to be Bob Diamond which confused me, because I thought he was something to do with football.

I don't think today is one of my better days.
