Merchant Banker: [on phone] Hello? Ah, Mr. Victim, yes, I’m glad to say I’ve got the go-ahead to lend you the money you require, yes. Uh, we will, of course, need as security the deeds to your house, of your aunt’s house, of your second cousin’s house, of your wife’s parents’ house, and of your granny’s bungalow – and we will, in addition, need a controlling interest in your new company, uh, unrestricted access to your private bank account, the deposit into our vaults of your three children as hostages, and a full legal indemnity against any acts of embezzlement carried out by any members of our staff during the normal course of their duties.
