At last Corrie's evil IFA Richard Hillman has done the decent thing and driven into the Weatherfield canal in what looked like a Metro, surely not a suitable car for an IFA, even a serial-murderer IFA, but what a shame that Gail got out. I suppose she looks so much like a fish that she must have felt in her element.
Now the Hillman Imp has finally run out gas with a plot which would shame a Victorian melodrama perhaps we can get around to repairing the unfairly besmirched reputation of the IFA industry with a schedule where financial services is shown in a good light.
9.30am: Fund Supermarket Sweep – a morning show where consumers compete for the chance to have free rein in a fund supermarket with no other shoppers about. Not that anyone would notice the difference at the moment.
10.30am: Top of the Peps – a rerun of famous classic investment funds from the 80s and 90s.
11.30am: Teptoe and Son – a rerun of the cult comedy classic where the son benefits from the secondhand endowment policy bought by his father with hilarious results.
12.30pm: Pound Force – money makeover with dull celebrities (I think this one might be on the box already).
1om: Working Lunch – self-explanatory in financial services.
2pm: The Good Equitable Life – Vanni Treves tries to cut costs and shore up the ailing life office fund by planting his own vegetables for use in the staff canteen in the verges of the head office car park.
3pm: I'm An IFA Get Me Out Of Here – various network and national chiefs are thrown together to see if they can co-operate for five minutes – the first to try and poach somebody else's RIs gets airlifted out.
5pm: New Stars In Their Eyes – 'nuff said.
6.30pm: Top Gearing – the team visit Aberdeen and Exeter to try some high-octane fuel-injection investment vehicles with slightly fewer safety features than a Volvo.
8pm: Coronation Street: a surprise inclusion in which good IFA Don Clark comes in and sorts out everybody's finances, Chuck. Hurrah.
