Sir Fred Goodwin, former head of the Royal Bank of Scotland has had several windows broken at his Edinburgh home as well as the windows of his beloved sports car smashed by vandals. Sir Fred decided to rectify the situation and spend some of his pension to repair them.
Although a well-known figure around the streets of Edinburgh, he decided to go incognito and donned a disguise. He approached a small boy playing truant near an Internet cafe and said to him; "I'm new around here could you please direct me to the bank so that I can draw some of my pension?"
Jimmy McDougall, the canny Scottish lad, told In Seine News; "I saw this man in a raincoat and thought he was a flasher and so I was a bit wary. He came up to me and asked me the way to the bank which is not a question you are asked every day. It was then I noticed that he was wearing a disguise and I realised I had seen him on the television and so I said; "of course I can PAL, but it will cost you £50!"
"The man muttered under his breath and asked; "Why the heck should I pay you so much?"
"The answer I gave him was that Bank Directors are always highly paid!"
