This is an aside but one of the things about Twitter is how amusing the tweets can be. Following the resignation of the odious Bob Diamond from Barclays, here are a few examples:
Sir Mervyn King@SirMervynKing yes, THE Sir Mervyn King…
If you’d like to contribute to Bob Diamond’s leaving collection please just continue to pay your taxes.
Bob Diamond quits Barclays to spend more time with his bonus.

Very annoyed Bob Diamond resignation doesn’t include the words ‘I’d have got away with it if it wasn’t for you pesky kids’.

Bob Diamond told me that if you give a man a gun, he can rob the bank, if you give a man a bank, he can rob the world.

Who is the UK’s biggest welfare claimant? Bob Diamond, whose £20m+ pay comes from government subsidies to Barclays.
How do we get criminal charges brought against Bob Diamond et al ? Simple, just need to find CCTV of them nicking bottle of water in riots.
Priceless! That’s one of the strengths of Twitter: you’re limited to 160 characters so really have to make every word count and that’s something that we writers also have to do. What a shame I bank with Barclays…..
