When Compliance start up about "we're breaching" or "if we do that we'll breach" or "we are about to breach"
or when Senior Management regret that "we have breached" or that "we will have to breach again"
- "breach" being the term applied a breaking of some or other pettifogistically pfuitistical Financial Services Act leading string -
I see in my mind's eye a whale breaching (illustration above).
The same happened for Reginald Perrin at any mention of his mother-in-law, only it was a hippopotamus
and voicelessly as Turkish mutes bowstring their victim, he was shot out of the boat, ere the crew knew he was gone. Next instant, the heavy eye-splice in the rope's final end flew out of the stark-empty tub, knocked down an oarsman, and smiting the sea, disappeared in its depths.
