BBC NEWS | UK | Banker bonuses minute, says duke.

The BBC reports:

The Duke of York has defended bankers' bonuses, saying they are "minute" in the scheme of things.

and

Prince Andrew said closing tax loopholes for Britain's 112,000 non-domiciles could have a detrimental effect on the UK.

Three things to say:

1) This is a man who sold his house to a tax haven company for more than market price. They then left it vacant. Why was that?

2) This is a man who was born to privilege and clealrly wants to preserve it for him and his friends

3) He is a civil servant and should now be sacked.

There'a another way of putting this: he's a dunderhead.
