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.

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'. . .
