State of the UK economy explained

Subject: The state of the UK economy explained

Who is the odd one out of this lot?

Lord Stevenson, former chairman, HBOS
Andy Hornby, former chief executive, HBOS
Sir Fred Goodwin, former chief executive, RBS
Sir Tom McKillop, former chairman, RBS
John McFall MP, chairman of Treasury select committee
Alistair Darling, Chancellor of the Exchequer
Sir Terry Wogan, presenter of Radio 2 breakfast show.

Answer: Sir Terry Wogan. He is the only one with a banking qualification.

Note for US readers: Terry Wogan is a highly successful BBC disk jockey, and by no means a shock jock. Urbane, humorous, always well mannered, knighted, as you can see, as a model of what we should all be like, a solid pillar of the BBC for many years. Plays good music, too.
