It must be about ten years ago, when a banking friend of mine actually told me that many of the banks, not just his, were on a mission to do away with
the smaller accounts, along with the 'rationalization' that was going on in bank staffing, and with the bank manager becoming nothing more than a
figurehead. The whole thing was geared to the coming 'Globalisation' and they all wanted to be the big players, except that they weren't. That was
reserved for the really big players, the cabal, who were waiting in turn to take the high street banks money.
Tony Robinson is 100% correct, and 2008 was the big steal. It should never be allowed to happen again, and for me, I am actively seeking for a safe
but perhaps boring building society/s, or perhaps a credit union to invest what money I have. The banks are buggered, we don't need the London and
New York hi-rise citadels to work for our money, any more than we need the magnificent cathedrals and mosques or temples to practice our faiths, they
are but symbols of a power that has nothing to do with the man in the street.
