Mais ou sont les handsome cab gas lamp fitters d'antan?

Well, where are they? The handsome cab gas lamp fitters? Where have they gone? Nowadays they are working or Chrysler. Or RBS. Or LloydsHBOS. Once upon a time they would be gone as the world moved on, and no-one would have missed them. I mean, do YOU miss handsome cabs? So why would you need handsome cab gas lamp fitters? And when the handsome cabs went were there unemployed handsome cab gas lamp fitters? No there were not. They went and did something else. So why wouldn't that be the case with the jobless workers at RBS, LoydsHBOS and Chrysler?

Because it looks as if the great and the good may have screwed up.

Crikey, I thought this was some wierd fetish, what you mean is hansom cab, surely?

In the same series - would Cornwall be better off if they had left the tin underground rather than use it all up?

MW - it was deliberate mis-spelling, sort of estuary hignorant fing. I thought it was quite droll, but now I am not so sure!
