Tim Price has an interesting take on bankers.

…the coinage “banker” has now completely replaced its assonant rival as a term of abuse to describe the hopelessly objectionable and contemptible.

Given the state of the economy shouldn’t the term be “tanker”? However, many blame W for the current mess.
And if the above sentence doesn’t set your head spinning it isn’t screwed on right.
