image for Bank bail out falters
Forgotten PIN threatens bank bail out.

Alastair Darling was left red faced today when the proposed bank bail out was postponed.

The chancellor was poised to transfer £100 billion into the banking system when he suddenly realised he had forgotten his ATM pin number.

"I'm sure it is my wife's birthday," said a red faced chancellor, "I'll have to wait a few days to get a new one sent to me."

Mrs Darling said, "My birthday indeed! He always forgets it."

A spokesman for Mr Darlings bank said "This is not uncommon. He still has access to his internet account though so the bail out should still go ahead."
