DK is Cross

No change there then.

In other news, DK is also wrong (as I demonstrate below). No change there either.

Further, and since we all like threesomes, I shall not deviate from my chosen calling and offer some pedantry.

  1. DK claims that
    The Royal Bank are shit
    Without prejudice to the other lot, "The Royal Bank" is, ahem, a "singular institution". Repeat after me, DK:
    The Royal Bank IS shit.
  2. As is often the case (rats - that's a FOURTH "no change there then"), DK's intemperance causes his prose to lack the biting wit, the fatal stab of precision, that others demonstrate so beautifully:
    After being charged £20 for a £10 overdraft, 30 year old Michael Howard [No relation presumably] of Leeds changed his name by deed poll to Yorkshire Bank PLC Are Fascist Bastards. The bank has now asked him to close his account, and Mr. Bastards has asked them to repay the 69p balance, by cheque, made out in his new name. (The Guardian)

That, DK, is how to be rude to your bank.

UPDATE: Link fixed. (this was only a problem due to DK's poor spelling in the first place. [/Grumble])

It is also just possible that DK is, cleverly, aping President Bush. But I doubt it.

I made that mistake because I think of a number of their employees as being utter incompetants, rather than one organisation...

Still, shall I do some lines...?

"incompetant" has a nice self-referential nature.
