An old old war tactic : divide and conquer. What this government does not want is for everybody to start thinking and wondering why billions of tax is not being paid by rich individuals and corporations. It crops up every now and then on the news followed very quickly by a government announcement of some welfare announcement. Classic re-direction of anger. That way the poor and middle earners in society are pointing figures at each other whilst the rich continue to suck out ever more cash.
Western economies are broken, those in positions of power know this so they are applying economic sticking plasters to prop it up long enough for the rich to squeeze out as much as they can and stash it away offshore before it goes belly up.
Incompetant bankers in jail : zero.
Libor fraudsters in jail : zero.
Directors of corporations known to have avoided tax in jail: zero
Bankers with bonuses and/or salaries 20-40% larger than 2 years ago : all of them
Tax avoiding directors with bonuses and/or salaries 20-40% higher than 2 years ago : all of them
