That would be John Burt, the former Bank of Scotland chief. Take the least kempt Wall Street banker, make him drink ethanol for a while and you’re still only half way here. Of course, according to the semiotics of British class, Mr. Burt here is displaying ruddy moors-stalking health, a manly disposition for drink and top-class hunting gear. Those popped veins come from whisky and Highland winds, and he can show them like peacocks feathers. (Noted in the middle of Panmure Gordon analyst Sandy Chen sets up his own bank – Times Online.)
