The roots of the B&B fiasco...

I can't get over the fact that Bradford and Bingley were still this week parading the bowler-hatted advertising icons around on TV, even while it was obvious to all that they had quite shamefully shredded their supposed reputation for sobriety and reliability...
 
 How about this conversation 'from the archives'...:
"Let's demutualise, Mr. Bradford."
"A capital idea, Mr. Bingley. It will deliver us lots of cash and an exciting new business-plan..."
"And with our solid and bankable reputation, how can it possibly go wrong, Mr. Bradford..."
