From Northern to Jailhouse – the FSA’s Rock codename revealed

The warden threw a party in the county jail.Elvis Pesley
The prison band was there and they began to wail.
The band was jumpin and the joint began to swing.
You should’ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

That’s right. The codename for Northern Rock, coined by the FSA but now used by all those trying to regulate this debacle, is “Elvis”.

As in Elvis Presley…the King…of Rock.

Which leaves us here on FT Alphaville unsure as to where to start…

Clearly, we now know how Virgin might like to celebrate if and when its low ball takeover offer for the former mortgage bank succeeds.Richard Branson

And there’s already a Branson Elvis Festival – an annual search for the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist, held each year in Branson, Missouri. This year’s winner was Justin Edwards from Oklahoma, although we’re not sure which one he is in the picture below.

Feel free to add an appropriate lyric using the comment box below. And remember, Northern Rock Lives!
