Skeletons are rattling around in bank closets
WE all suspect that a proper investigation into the country's cash-destroying zombie banks would reveal a few metaphorical skeletons in the vaults, but it is unlikely that even the most diligent search would uncover a real body.
Over in France, where the banks also have a few skeletons on the balance sheets, police also found the real thing this week when officials stumbled upon a mummified body of a man trapped inside an air duct at a branch of Credit Foncier in Lyon.
Reports said that investigators were unsure if the half-rotted corpse was a trapped worker, a burglar who was attempting to sneak inside the building or a tramp looking for shelter.
What we do know is that workers at the bank had complained since the end of last summer about a bad smell coming from the air vent.
Couldn't happen here where we have been complaining about a bad smell coming from the banks since 2008.
