is it right that the government still allows the bailed out banks to get huge bonuses?
whilst the rest of the Uk face vast spending cuts and jobs loses. The head of Barclays today argued that the 'period of remorse and apology for banks needs to be over' - just a day after it emerged he is likely to receive a payout of £9million this year. Bob Diamond, who claimed yesterday that the size of his bonus is evidence of 'financial restraint', told MPs that banks 'needed to be able to take risks' and that the 'blame game should be put behind us'. . .

Can Americans seriously say that Bankers EARN what they award themselves in bonuses? Or is it not just pure GREED on their part?

The UK government is against it, but legislating creates the liklihood of the banks deserting Britain, and then we really are up the creek economically. Be content that the miscreants will be paying 50% tax on any sum received, but I'm sure the banks will find a way round that too.
