Coming Out

THE DAYS OF 'secret Swiss Bank accounts' may be coming to an end. In a deal reached between the US government and the Swiss Bank UBS, names of people suspected of hiding large sums of money in the bank in order to avoid taxes in the US could be revealed as early as today.

This is a little awkward, but we should probably just get it out there before the bank releases the information: we're probably on this list. Our millions are sitting in a bank in Zurich and it's probably better to reveal that information on our own terms rather than waiting for the BBC to out us later today.

There. That feels like a weight being lifted from our shoulders.

(How do you think we paid for our 2001 Renault Scenic?)

We got our millions (is it millions or billions? I can't remember) wired to the Cayman Islands just in time.
