S&F for that report. In the UK we are told that the City earns the biggest amount of income for the country - 'For the Country'! I am surprised
Cameron doesn't choke with laughter when he spews that one out.
Last night I watched a programme where in the UK the presenter posed the idea that we all love to watch period programmes because their lives back in
past periods were, more productive and in a way more fulfilling. Sure they had problems but every generation has those, but they didn;t have the
stress we are all artificually put under now.
Being in my 60's I look back fondly on the past because the pressure my family and people everywhere face today with things like credit checks,
banking manipulation, a loss of freedom of speech and the right to protest at genuine disgusting behaviour by those in power etc has been eroded so
much they no longer are options. Then you need to account for the additional pressure, that makes the whole financial rip-off far worse, which is the
extra expenses and cost of living increases, not only added by rogue traders, but our own institutions which have now reached epic proportions when
one considers the taxes we already pay.
When one looks at the elite sitting in government s'n-word'ing at the world they run - here I am thinking of Cameron and his ghastly side kick Osborne
and their cronies from the financial sector, one can see why we still do not have any effective constraints on our bankers behaviour. Even when they
are caught blatantly manipulating markets the Bank only get fined. There is no prison sentences for the perpetrators of the swindle eg top men who
probably collude these policies with the governmental and then we watch these criminals collect huge bonuses which they claim to have legitimately
We in the UK and I think in the USA have an elite, small set of banks, yet not every country's government has been so stupiod as to allow banking to
get into the hands of such a few or to allow the power of this to occur. I saw an article saying that in Germany there are over different 200 banks,
yet in the UK we only have 4 or five too big to fail banks that literally run the country. Sure we have building societies but they have been added
more as camouflage to hide the real situation. People have been kept deliberately ignorant of how our exclusive banking works, they are ignorant
about the role of Central Banks. Most people think that the Bank of England is actually the Government owned bank. They haven't a clue its a private
owned Central Bank or what it does except to issue kindly old-aged sages to talk about the progress the country is making and interest rates.
Personally I would get rid of the leaching Central Banks as I suspect their costs to the tax payer, were we to loose them would help get us out of
debt considerably quicker than with them in place. Surely a country's own Treasury should be dealing with printing money and is capable of paying
top grade financiers to work within it to do the job.
Everyone lives in fear of the 'top calibre' bankers leaving their banks, but there are only a set number of that grade of job in the whole world, so
the bankers do not have as many options as they are credited with having and we have far too many examples of incompetent bankers being paid off or
still sitting in their jobs that the plug needs pulling on them. Go live in the real world should be a motto for these bottom feeders.
