Thumbs down Re: THE UK...SHOVE IT

Oh dear. We're obviously not going to get back all those hundreds of billions of pounds we've spent propping the banking system up, so let's blame the poor British working class for failing to find work that isn't there. Of course there are always people who try to abuse the system, but let's remember that the vast majority of the working population in Britain are good honest workers who ask only for a chance to work (and often feel bad about reverting to signing on - many try to avoid this as much as possible). Next folk here will be saying we need another 2 million Eastern Europeans to come into the UK, to do the work "British people won't do". Sorry, but this is absolute crap,

I don't think the bankers have got away with it yet. I have yet to meet ANYBODY who does not think this was fraud. With a very capital F. And that includes some very senior Government officials.
If I were a senior banker I would be looking for countries with no extradition treaty with the UK. Zimbabwe springs to mind.

Fraud, greed and incompetence.

Trouble is, we have to bail the banks out. If they went under, what we have seen so far would look like a picnic.

I agree...not sure who writes it but some of the articles take some believing.
