Bon Diamond-Geezer will plead the Fifth

London - The Barclays boss is the City's latest fallen idol being cattle-prodded into a Leveson-style public inquiry about endemic rot under his watch.

Tonight he's adamant there's no resigning issue in his running of a huge, corrupt, casino-style bank that regulators have just fined nearly three hundred million squid.

Now the prospect looms of a public hearing conducted under oaf - er...oath! - definitely anathema in this bigwig fantasy world where a banker's word is as close to Gospel as it gets.

However there's plenty of support for Diamond to plead the Fifth according to movers and shakers on the board of a major Illuminati slush fund.

Officials at the Atlantic Council, a US/UK political stink tank, are backing Diamond-Geezer all the way 'as long as he stays schtum about the usual tricky stuff'.

"A sphynx-like aura never harmed Kissinger," is how one anonymous former US Senator put it to QM NewsCorpse reporters.

"Smart money's on Diamond moving to run the European Central Bank."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
