WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE – Bankers On The Run

with 2 comments

It is infuriating to see them now scurrying and rushing to reduce their interest rates after the outcry at their dilatory and greedy response to the Bank Of England’s massive rate cut.

We are going to to have to drag the w**ker bankers every greasy step of the way to a place where they start behaving responsibly and fulfilling their obligations to us as major shareholders.  We are going to have to watch their dishonest and deceitful efforts to snaffle huge bonuses, in shares if not cash, and we are going to have to treat them as the completely untrustworthy spivs that they are.

What is clear that some of them are already getting away with it because the government has been so weak in stipulating the conditions and “mechanisms”, as Gordon Brown put it, that will control their greed and thievery.

It is time to start naming names and for the work to be done that will uncover and expose those who have manipulated the system for their own ends.

The first candidate for the WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE poster is Bob Diamond of Barclays. 

Bob Diamond, Barclays

Bob Diamond, Barclays

It is generally agreed that he has spurned the government’s rescue package in favour of the Arabs so that he can hang on to his outrageous, undeserved multimillion pound bonus.  I will be researching his record in more detail.

Please submit your nominations for WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE bankers with as much evidence as you can.

  1. I would like to know which banker had the audacity, under a cloak of anonimity, to claim that the banks “are not charities” on Channel 4 News. No, well, neither is the tax payer. Mug perhaps, charity know. I have written more here: http://britishpolitics.wordpress.com/2008/11/08/uk-banks-or-not-charities/

  2. Peter – you’ll like this joke pinched from the Newsnight blog:

    Q: What is the definition of optimism?
    A: A banker ironing five shirts on a Monday morning?

    Hopefully, what goes around will finally come around. Keep up the good fight.
