A Quiz

WHO IS THE ODD MAN OUT - and more importantly - WHY?Huh
1. Lord Stevenson: former chairman, HBOS
2. Sir Fred Goodwin: former chief executive, RBS
3. Andy Hornby: former chief executive, HBOS
4. Sir Tom McKillop: former chairman, RBS
5. John McFall MP: chairman of Treasury Select Committee
6. Alastair Darling: Chancellor of the Exchequer
7. Gordon Brown: Prime Minister and former Chancellor
8. Sir Terry Wogan: Radio and TV presenter

You're probably thinking Terry Wogan.............

And you're right.

However, the reason may surprise you...........

Terry Wogan is the only one out of this lot who actually holds any formal banking qualification.
True.

Re: A Quiz

So what "formal banking qualification" does Terry Wogan have? I know that he worked in a bank but is there more?
I haven't checked the others but Sir Fred Goodwin is a FCIBS.

Re: A Quiz

Sorry, but I can't answer your questions.
The quiz has been sent to me (and others) by a friend, and I thought that the forum may be interested in it.
It was sent by someone who is reliable and doesn't send 'spam', so I haven't checked.
If it is in any way incorrect, then I unreservedly apologise.

Re: A Quiz

Could be though, that sir Tel is the only one who's ever "worked" for his pay in a bank!! or at least deserved it.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
