Jo the Disgruntled Banker, was more than a little peeved when he was locked out of RBS and his hot paella got a little cold.
The money laundering for Mexican Drug Cartels, financing of Tar Sands in Canada, Libor and many other scams and scandals seems of little concern to Jo the Banker, all that mattered was his cold lunch.
And why was he locked out? Because Russell Brand was trying to illicit a little information direct from the horse’s mouth, only to be met by over zealous security who put the building in lock down.
When is a bonus not a bonus? When it is a crooked banker calling it an allowance to get around the cap on bonuses.
We own RBS aka Rotten Bank of Scotland. We should have let it go bust. Then instead of bonuses, the bankers would have been on the Dole.
We should have followed the example of Iceland, they refused to bail out the banks, put the bankers in prison, and sacked their parliament.
We own RBS, is it not time they were accountable to us?
When two RBS banker were found guilty of a £3 million fraud, the judge let them walk free, saying he felt sorry for them. The judge said they had already “suffered” as they were “embarrassed” by the incident. Presumably they were not embarrassed until they were caught.
The banks are not too big to fail. They should be broken up into smaller banks. They should be broken up, casino banking from retail banking.
The crooked banks take our money, gamble with it, finance dirty energy, then when it goes wrong, blame a few rogue bankers and go cap in hand to the government.
When banks threaten to bring the financial system down, is that no different to a terrorist with hostages, threatening to execute them and blow up the building?
We should all minimise our dealing with the banks. Use cash. Use crowd funding to raise money for projects. Use peer to peer. Use crypto-currency.
