I've Got It! We'll Make it Harder!

While the rest of the world is working towards usability, Londoners are apparently above that. Enter the Cockney Rhyming Slang ATM. I can't believe this is seriously being considered, but here you go nonetheless: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/money/consumer_affairs/article6808494.ece.
Locals might like it, but the rest of us are in Barney. Don't know what that means, check it:

Basher: So unless we intend to do this job in Reno, we're in barney.
[everyone pauses]
Basher: Barney Rubble.
[they look bewildered]
Basher: Trouble!
Ocean's Eleven.

I had a co-worker who was British, and he was trying to explain Cockney rhyming slang to me - he invited me out after work for some Britney's.

Britney Spears rhymes with "beers" then drop the part which would provide the clue. He and I agreed that this was a fascinating attempt by insiders to keep outsiders out.
