How dare we call the Masters of the Universe to account?

As the FT notes this morning:

HSBC’s chief executive has complained that bankers are being held to a higher standard than bishops as the UK government promised a legal crackdown on banks that facilitate tax evasion.

That's because you thought y0u were the Masters of the Umiverse Mr Gulliver, up there with the Gods. The bishops only claim to be God's servants. Of course that makes bankers more accountable.
