Sir Fred Goodwin, the former boss of the Royal Bank of Scotland, who receives a £650,000-a-year pension from them after he completely wrecked it, has today laughed-off the the bank's £24billion losses, saying that "it's only money".
Prime Minister Gordon Brown called Sir Fred's pension "obscene", and said he would be taking steps - through the courts if necessary - to ensure that it wasn't paid.
Sir Fred spoke to our Spoof reporter this morning from his luxury yacht in the Bahamas. He said:
"It's a very serious situation, but you have to laugh. In fact, if it were not so funny, it would be extremely serious, but you have to realise, it's just numbers on a page, big numbers admittedly, but just numbers on a page all the same."
