So a 31 year old has been arrested for going ‘rogue’, and losing the Swiss banking giant UBS 1.3 billion pounds. That’s pretty careless in anybody’s world to lose 1.3 billion; perhaps it was left in a taxi, perhaps in a bar after snorting cocaine with George Osborne (it wasn’t me Mr Coulson honest……….do you want a job?). I’m pretty certain, as with Nic Leeson, that he was told – if your plan works we (meaning UBS) are even richer, if it doesn’t your fucked and we know nothing!

I do think the un-named man should be applauded though, for single handedly attempting to destroy one of the major banks, even if it wasn’t his true intention.
