Is it right for bankers to act like this? Anyone for a cheap drink?

Post by Stox 16 on Mon Dec 19, 2011 12:10 am

First topic message reminder :

So Cameron looks after the interests of the City Bankers while they have a cheap drink or two. are you happy with this?

In an interview with the Times, Diamond said the rule applied to bankers considered to be prima donnas, too greedy, too ostentatious or poor team players. He said he had already kicked out 30 staff for breaking his new ethics rule.

"If someone can't behave with their colleagues and can't be part of the culture, it doesn't matter how good they are at what they do, they have to be asked to leave," he said.

Referring to the incident at the Gordon Ramsay restaurant Petrus, Diamond said: "That was embarrasing. It was taking advantage – we have a responsibility to our colleagues to have acted that way in a public place was inexcusable."

The bankers consumed some of the most expensive wine available to London diners: a 1982 Montrachet priced at £1,400 and three bottles of Petrus Pomerol. A 1945 bottle of Petrus cost £11,600, a 1946 bottle £9,400 and a 1947 bottle £12,300. There was also a dessert wine costing £9,200. The restaurant threw in the food for free.

Still.... as Cameron said, We must look after the interests of the City from Europe. I can see what he means by this. as its so worrying that they are driven to drinking £12,300 bottles of wine. Still they do pay the Tory party £6 million a year to look after them. Wounder who looks after the rest of US? or the 2.7Million Unemployed.

I can't avoid the thought that the words "Tory" and "Banker" have no separate meaning from each other.

The Bankers seem to think that it's now alright to resume their previous standards of service to the public. HSBC threatening to transfer their business from Canary Wharf to Hong Kong (as if !!!) has frightened the government into sacking the official at the FCA who had been making trouble for them.

Apparently HSBC will not face any action here over its sheltering of tax-evading Britons' accounts in Switzerland.
Of course not, would you punish a cat for catching a mouse? It's in their nature, they can't help doing it. Again, and again and again.

This has not been a good time for Standard Chartered Bank, having lost three-quarters of its share price since 2014 and last week reported its first annual loss in 25 years.

So heads must roll, and former deputy chief executive Mike Rees, at the age of 60 has fallen on his sword. On leaving, he will receive a pension of £590,000 (that's eleven thousand pounds a WEEK).

I reckon even my daughter could scrape by on that.
