    By Patrick Jenkins, Banking Editor

    By Norma Cohen, Demography Correspondent

    Since the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008, there has been plenty of comment - most notably from Labour's deputy leader Harriet Harman - to the effect that the catastrophic collapse could have been avoided had the firm instead been Lehman Sisters.
