Business owners try (successfully) to stave off being wound up:
‘It aint our fault, the stoopid court froze the bank account so we cuddent pay the stoopid bill could we, but we done it today some’ow like’
The other director chipped in ‘Yeah, our account is managed by the banking equivalent of Mr Bean’
Everyone looked at the judge. Possibly because these two guys looked as if they meant business and would beat up anyone who would disagree with them.
The judge looked up ‘I am afraid that you will find that the whole British banking system is being run by the equivalent of Mr Bean!’
