Virgin Money wants to remove bollocks from finance industry

Virgin Money is not in the business of castration but is determined to use new technology to rid the finance sector of bollocks.

The challenger bank claims new technology that allows bank cards to have personal details on the back and pictures of the Sex Pistols on the front will remove the industry’s bollocks. Tenuous.

Virgin Money chief Jayne-Anne Ghadia, said: “We don’t want Anarchy in banking – but we do want change. And we want to get rid of the bollocks in banking and to be simple, open, transparent and fair.”

Downtime does not see the connection.

Perhaps the FCA could take a leaf out of the company’s book and tell bankers: “If you step out of line again we will put your bollocks on sticks and parade them on London Bridge.” If that doesn’t stop misbehaviour nothing will.
