What Sir Mervyn King told the Treasury Select Committee

A short verse noting the angry outburst by Bank of England governor Sir Mervyn King when unfairly challenged by the Treasury Select Committee about his record, specifically his failure to curtail bankers’ unquenchable thirst for a profit at the taxpayers’ expense.

Sir Mervyn King

Detests bankers’ bling

But finds few things more pleasing

Than quantitive easing
