Default Fred the shred

Loses his knighthood. I can't help thinking that's a little pointless.

Having met him, I don't think he should have got it in the first place (don't get me started on Alan Sugar) - but really, taking it away? It's just petty.

And the CEO who was effectively forced to hand back his bonus - that's just nuts. He should have kept it. It was paid in shares not cash for God's sake.

Amen.

Bonus paid in shares is not a bad incentive to make sure it keeps rising. Better results = better share price = better bonus. Why shouldn't he be rewarded for doing a good job?

Fred was an excellent one to finger a blame and to be the face for 'bankers' in the UK, to direct abuse and rants at.

Taking away a knighthood - pretty pointless, you're right. He probably doesn't give a shit - his credibility (if he had some, but I'm assuming the CEO of a major bank does have some) and ability to secure a decent role in the future are in tatters......i'd be more worried about that than being Sir.

they should go one step further and formally take away his surname, replacing it by deed poll with 'the shred'

so it's on his Gas bills, golf club membership etc thus never being able to forget his former ways

Changing the subject to movies, I quite liked the ending to Inglorious Bastards.
