Top Gear’s top secret racing driver is in fact the chairman of crisis-hit Royal Bank of Scotland, The Mole may have overheard someone say at some point yesterday.
Angry shareholders are now said to be demanding an immediate enquiry into the conduct of RBS boss Sir Tom McKillop, saying his moonlighting work as the man in the white mask might have been responsible for the bank’s record losses.
“No wonder we’re £80 trillion in debt,” stormed an angry shareholder, apparently.
“If you spend every Wednesday on the limit at the Top Gear track in a Gumpert Apollo, you’re going to drop the ball with your day job sooner or later.”
Sir Tom’s secret identity was revealed when he moved all important board meetings from their usual time of Wednesday morning to Thursday morning. It’s now believed he did this to free up time to set laps down at the TG track, as Wednesday is the day they record the show.
“He came up with some convoluted story about shifting the time to suit the Asian markets, but now we know that’s all bollocks,” a spokesperson allegedly said.
