Fred the Shred
The Sun tracks down Fred the Shred and asks him the most important question about his pension:
Well, yes, but it is true that a government minister signed off on his taking early retirement and thus getting his pension now....rather than being fired. The effects of his taking early retirement were in fact spelled out and the Minister knew this back in October. He just failed to tell anyone else about it.
The Daily Mash is good on this though:
The disgraced banker spoke out while bent over double in an Edinburgh street, slapping his knee as his cheeks took on a deep, rosy pink colour.
Becoming light-headed, he was then forced to crouch down with his head buried in his hands while his shoulders began to jiggle uncontrollably.
Minutes later the 50 year-old pensioner stood up and attempted to compose himself before his face erupted once again and he began waving frantically as if to stay, 'no, stop, stop, I can't take it any more'.
About right you might think.
