London Needs Full Inquest Into Bumi Scandal As financial scandals go, the Libor scandal has it all—well, nearly all. It involves big global banks; lavishly-paid traders, some barely out of university; lurid emails; exotic markets; the humbling of high ranking executives; vast fines and possible criminal proceedings. All that is missing is one essential ingredient: a clearly identifiable victim.

Godiva (Godgifu) (d. between 1057 and 1086). Wife of Earl Leofric of Mercia. To obtain her request that Coventry be relieved of a heavy toll, she is alleged to have ridden naked through the market. The legend obscures her reputation as benefactress of religious establishments. She and Leofric were buried in their Coventry church. Roger of Wendover in the 13th cent. first related her ride; 18th-cent. writers embellished it with picturesque detail like ‘Peeping Tom’.
