Heads need to start rolling, and I don't mean fresh ideas or some hipster head banging protest.

Bankers who have intentionally screwed over entire countries should be the first to test out the new chane'l sponsored guillotines. id have no problem pulling the lever.

G,day mate. i could not agree with you more. according to my long dead father. think it was 1947 or 8 a referendum was held with a yes outcome.all aussies would get the old age pension. ALL. so when canberra started with everyone needs to have super and they started to take the pension away from people. they broke their own law and agreement/sacred trust with the public. so, with this one world govt socialist system coming. i can see a time in the not too distant future when canberra takes all of everyone's super and puts all of us in a totally controlled cashless system of servitude. bugga that was a long sentence. im puffed out.

The richest 10% have been stealing this money for centuries off the poor......It's about time they put some of their stolen money back into the system, imo anyway


What an ignorant statement. The top 10% in the UK are mainly qualified professionals like doctors and owners of moderate sized business. Most of us depend on their tax contributions to keep the welfare state going.

An income of £45k a year puts you into the top ten percent in the UK. £58K gets into the top 5%. Standard qualified hard working professional wages.The reward for investing years and thousands of pounds into training. Also, business owners in this kind of pay bracket typically create wealth for others as well as themselves from the operation of their business. They aren't parasites, we need them and their tax.

So not stolen money, earned.

Your left wondering how they might be expected to do such a thing. Are they to just make it up out of thin air, sell something, cut wages, or are we looking at a depositor haircut aka Cyprus Style on the cards ?


If you'd read the article you quote as your source, you wouldn't need to ask the question or engage in speculation. It says "No new government money will be required. Banks are likely to raise the funds by issuing more bonds or selling shares".


So why is every news reporter on my tv asking the same questions ?

and to add the page I linked to has been updated by the bbc since the announcement was made. The earlier version did not have that information. The amount has been changed as well down to £25B

edit on 27-3-2013 by bigyin because: (no reason given)


The BBC did NOT update the Daily Mail website!

Despite the tons of money flung at these criminals and there never ending partying they still are costing us dear.

I say close them down and seize all the assets of those working in the banks as proceeds of crime.


And for anyone who isn't into fear porn...

This is a post about nothing. They're not taking anyone's savings - they're being told to put aside the funds to avoid a collapse! duh

Fear Porn strikes again

Hmmm....A haircut eh?

If they took cash from the top 10% wealthiest people ....thats lets say....5.6m people
they average net CASH balances of £123,000 ($186345) compared to the bottom 10% average CASH is £400 ($606),
So £12000 cash off a balance of £123,000 would raise 67billion

and none of the poor would even notice
nore would the rich
edit on 27-3-2013 by zerozero00 because: (no reason given)


The average cash balance of the top 10% of adults is NOT £123,000! You really think 1 in 10 adults have that money!? That is a ridiculous statement.

Welcome to weakest link: Bankers edition.

You've banked nothing, scored nothing and yet you still have a bonus.

Mock the week humor aside, and since this is a conspiracy website, all these financial failings makes me wonder if its not intentional. If people cant control something by brute force, the find another way to achieve their goals. Plan B - make the people dependent on government and financial institutions, make both dtsfunctional to the point it adversely affects the population.

Results:
An apothetic population who give up on the government and their involvement in that government. Crash the whole system and people wont need to be conquered.

Haven't seen anybody mention this but your thread title is misleading...Article says "Bank of England tells banks to raise £25bn", not £60 billion. Closest to what £60 billion is that they banks in the UK are looking forward to £50 billion due to "bad loans and fines". £25 billion spread over a nation of banks isn't really that much and it's probably to assure that something like Cyprus doesn't occur as these banks start incurring those losses. Basically, providing a guarantee for depositor accounts and prevent further recession by bank's responding to those losses through the cessation of lending.

Banks underlying profits have actually leaped massively since 2008, but their reported profits have been owing to things such as PPI claims etc..

The Banks simply have to keep hold of this profit rather than hand it out to shareholders. This is of no concern to us for the banks which are privately owned, but it will delay any plan to sell of RBS for example as such a move would hit the share prices.

So basically, to answer your question, no, it won't be us taxpayers forking out the cash but simply them holding back money they have made themselves..

Christ, that puts me just inside the top 10% and I certainly couldn't afford to have my Bank account harvested... Not withstanding the fact I have just liquidated my investments to pay for a car, so literally have nothing...

That said, it won't actually come to that as stated before, the Banks are to raise the money themselves which is something they can easily do.

Hehe, nobodies perfect


I shouldn't worry though - there is no prospect of the Banks dipping into our accounts, the BoE is quite clear the money has to be raised via standard means, ie; share issues, cash retention, that sort of thing.

Obviously you havn't been keeping up. My OP linked to a bbc article which was written before the boe made its statement. After the staement was made the bbc updated the article with the actual figures, but before that the bbc had said that the expected amount was £60B as my title correctly stated.

Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank and he can rob the entire world.

It's called profiteering and it seems as though the definition needs to be updated.
en.wikipedia.org...

Profiteering is a pejorative term for the act of making a profit by methods considered unethical.

It's quite obvious that the banksters have made racketeering legal in the belief that we'll actually believe that this is being done to save the economy. Well, it's not and they do need to be brought up on charges, given a fair trial, then hung from the gallows in the center of towns everywhere.

I was wondering if it had been changed but didn't see anybody note the difference between the two. I wasn't the OP so not my job to mention that it was altered...

I think they'd be underestimating the Brits. They're usually a quiet bunch, but this will send drive them to violence. Like the 'youth riots' a couple years back, but with everyone else backing them and joining them this time.

Cyprus is a small quiet oasis compared to the horrors of inner city Britain and those horrors will be unleashed. They won't do this unless those horrors are what they really want.

Good article here for anyone who thinks Cyprus' haircut can't happen anywhere else.
theeconomiccollapseblog.com...
Also reported on Keiser Report this am that New Zealans and Spain have passed legislation based on the Cypriot levy. I can't provide a link to it at the moment, but it will appear here
rt.com...
later today.

Star.

One bank has got away with it - holding savings to ransom and locking the doors, while they conspired to change the rules to allow them to get away with what is basically, embezzlement.

I don't know what makes folk think the other banks can't or won't do this - those folk in Cyprus propably thought the same.

Banks make their own rules up and change them as they go along - they always have - and this is why they never lose out.

The only way they can't do it is if you take your money off them, now. I can hardly believe that folk are still trusting these criminals after Cyprus.

I've often wondered to myself if people HAVE been taking their money out of their banks, but for obvious reasons it isn't being reported ... . I just find it difficult to believe that no-one has done anything about moving their money since this happened in Cyprus. It was the first thing I expected to happen.
