June, it seems, is Re-Writing History Month.
We start with C@W favourite Hector Sants as he heads for the hills and tells us that "the Bank of England could have avoided a run on Northern Rock if they had taken up his idea to provide a loan to Lloyds TSB to buy the bank."
Alternatively Hector, if we are exploring counterfactuals, you could have supervised Northern Rock properly in the first place, which would look even better on your CV.
Eclipsing this local hero is global megastar José Manuel Barroso at the G20 summit. Evidently the old ones are the best ones, for he gives us: "This crisis was not originated in Europe … this crisis originated in North America".
Always goes down a treat, that one. Remind us Jose, which were the first two banks to go under in 2007, even before the Crock ? Ah yes, they were German banks. Still, if you use Gordon Brown as your script-writer, accuracy limps along in last position.
And speaking of the master, how he must have loved being in front of Leveson: so much re-writing to do, and so little time ! A pity it will be his Lordship that will have his hand on the Big Pen.
