    As if by magic…. What is it with British (or any other company) that they expose themselves to American shareholders and laws. It is now only a matter of time before a partisan grand jury calls for Freds extradition to the US and is tried and convicted by an equally partisan jury. Then RBS will be held liable for whatever (massive) damages the partisan jury awards some class action in Buttfuck New Mexico and the British taxpayer will end up giving cash to redneck fuckwits because our government can’t regulate its banks and can’t negotiate an extradition treaty.

    At least it’ll give the lie to ‘It wasnae me it started in America’ when some US jury finds against one of our major banks.

    Thanks again Brown.

    I assume you will be defending the (alledgedly) lying, thieving, stinking, cheating, crooked bankers?

    You’ve been very low key in your condemnation of them haven’t you. Ah that’s because you’re their wannabe lick spittle, aren’t you.

    The extradition treaty is for criminal offences.
    This matter is civil, for now.
    If there is a criminal indictment, why shouldn’t the individuals face prosecution.
    Ask 100 people in the street, 93 of them will say it’s a good thing, the other 7 are on bail.

    I see the Labour policy of getting in your retaliation first continues. Look, jackass, my concern is that lax regulation and lax treaties will leave the UK tax-payer on the hook for the idiocies of Gordon Brown.

    You will be too ill-informed to know of a case a few years ago when the Cuban government got pissed off with a bunch of yanks flying their plane over Havana and tipping out ‘Overthrow Castro Now’ leaflets. Not unnaturally (imagine the shoe were on the other foot) the Cubans eventually got so pissed off they shot the yanks down. Killing them. Shame.

    The yanks families in Florida lodged a claim and a partisan jury awarded them several billion dollars. Which Cuba has declined to pay. So the family has gone after AT&T for their share of the phone calls to Cuba.

    With gobshite Brown pissing off the yanks with his ‘started in America’ crap it won’t take too much for a similar jury to make a similar judgement and suddenly we’ll all be on the hook for Brown’s showboating and regulatory and legislative incompetence.

    But I see you’re waaaay to stupid to understand that.

    Goodwin and the other directors are indemnified by RBS. RBS is underwritten by the tax payer. The bottom line is the tax payer is picking up the bill for any claims.

    And while the government regulators were failing to spot the mess RBS was getting into, Ms Booth’s husband was running the country. Allegedly.

    The claim is apparently a class action in New York. Ms Booth is neither a company nor a commercial lawyer and she is not admitted to the New York Bar – so why have the local authorities hired her?

    Labour government apologists like Captain Grimes don’t seem to understand that. To them it’s all about scape-goating the bankers and shielding the real culprits (the Labour government of all the idiots).

    The fact that Blair was gleefully signing us up to any old treaty and any old charter knowing full-well that he was handing a lifetime of overpaid ‘work’ to his frankly scary-looking missus we are expected to believe was just pure co-incidence. I bet he never even declared an interest.

    Last month a doddery QC tried to same trick in Oban (a small town in Scotland for the Saxons), but withdrew his case as it could not be held at a small courts level and RBS could charge their costs if he lost rather than the £3000 limit. No such rule in the US…

    But this is a non starter > Cherie is a bleeding heart European Court of Human Rights specialist . . the only case this has is on US Securites Exchange Commission rules (that RBS knew they were buggered when they asked for capital investment at 243p per share. now 22 ish p per share)
    Cherie an expert on financial regulation? I think not (credit cards and blagging freebies excluded)

    Do you seriously think the Conservatives are going to cozy up to bankers and hedge fund scammers in public?

    Do you really think ordinary working people are not going to realise what’s been done, you may be mad the rest of us aren’t.

    Over the weekend there was a lot of coverage of the evisceration of Jim Cramer by John Stewart. You should see the video.

    No that brand….the Conservative brand is knackered. That’s why they are running around like well as if they were John Redwood. Woof woof woof

    Shropshire Lad says:

    I suggest Captain Grimes reads the account on Wikki of how the Natwest were extradited and became ensnared in the USA legal system.

    The account also describes how RBS prevented colleagues giving evidence in their defence and how one former colleague committed suicide after providing a crucial statement which in part led to their extradition.

    Anyhow what makes you think it was suicide. Strange isn’t it a witness dies…..hmmm that could (alledgedly) be convenient.

    Anyhow they did it (alledgedly) so good thing for them to stand trial, isn’t it?

    Thousands of Enron staff lost their entire pensions thanks (alledgedly) to those bankers’ ‘financial innovation’. Now what were their bonuses/fees for these (alledged) scams? hmmm

  49. 49
    jgm2 says:

    Naaaaah. Inconvenient facts.

    The whole strategy is to tie the ‘economic downturn which started in America and has fuck-all to do with me, Gordon Brown’ onto any convenient scapegoat. America (that plays well with the yank-hating tendencies of the Greenham Common cult) and the bankers (which ties in with many folks natural aversion to being beholden to anybody – in this case the guys who extended them a mortgage for their laughably over-valued, badly-cobbled-together, piece-of-shit ‘executive home’).

    So by scape-goating those folk for whom we collectively feel very little sympathy at the best of times Brown seeks to avoid the spotlight that his rampant idiocy so richly deserves. And although not completely successful, with the help of the BBC, it has had some traction with the 30% of the electorate who couldn’t find their arse with both hands.

    But those 30% are not to be blamed entirely. They have been kept in poverty and idiocy by successive Labour governments for the express purpose of prolonging the ‘class war’. We should reserve our contempt for the likes of the BBC and Toynbee who surely know better but are prepared to keep this 30% in their state of idiocy because it guarantees their turn at screwing up the economy every couple of decades. Although this time, with a three-term run of idiocy they look to have gone for gold and finally bankrupt us all.

    Nice one. Jackasses.

    jgm2 says:

    Your slip is showing. A brief one-liner condemning Blair, Brown and Cameron as banker’s sock-puppets and then it’s back to ‘It’s all the Tories fault’.

    Probably Margaret Thatchers. Or the yanks. Or Fred Goodwins. Certainly not Gordon ‘financially incontinent’ Brown.

    I don’t understand this desire to exonerate Brown and this Labour government by appealing to ‘what ifs’ that may have happened had the Tories been in government. We must deal with the idiots as we find them and so the primary concern has to be to make sure that Brown and his associated jackasses and jackals are presented with the largest collection of P45’s in electoral history. Anything else would be a crime in the court of public opinion. Doncha think?

    Nobody at Enron lost their jobs because of the actions of the NatWest 3. If you had read the charges you would know that they were charged with defrauding NatWest (not Enron) because they bought a security that had once bbeen owned by Nat West which was later worth a lot more. Nat West and CSFB had previously and independently estimated the value of the security as virtually worthless.

    They didn’t stand trial but appeared in court to plead guilty, the consensus among their advisors being that they were better off with a plea bargain and a short sentence with transfer to the UK and likely release in 18 months, which would be preferable to possible multiple 35 year terms in US prisons.

    It is notable that the other trial involving non Enron and non Andersen personnel (4 Merrill Lynch bankers) resulted in 4 convictions which were later overturned on appeal on the basis that the “fraud” of which they were accused was not a fraud at all, and the accusations and trial were largely political. One of the defendants remained in jail on a charge of obstructing justice, although one of the 3 Appeal Court judges said that the legal basis for that conviction was similarly flawed.

    There are plenty of US lawyers who believe that the NatWest 3 would have had a similar case if they ever appealled, which they could not do because of the plea bargain.

    That the Blair’s are going to make more money out of the financial disaster which they are directly responsible for is yet another sick joke of many.

    No Guido, you were not the only one to be amused at this news, there is a certain irony to the years of “light regulation” being prosecuted by the former PM’s wife though.

    Oh dear. Greed, arrogance punctuated with feelings of inadequacy when no-one else gives you the respect you crave, jealousy at success of others, inability to take responsibility for own failures etc etc. See it in Labour voters all the time.
    You went to a mid-ranking university, probably in the north – maybe Liverpool or Hull. I expect you read history or social sciences, maybe you got a 2.2 in the end. You probably applied for a job at JP Morgan or UBS but got rejected in the first round. Instead of getting over it and moving on, your bitterness at the rejection, mixed with an inability to accept any suggestion of personal fault, leads you to point your chubby finger of blame at those who have what you desire ($$$, though like all good socialists you would never admit it) – the bankers.
    ‘Why do those bankers get paid so much – I work just as hard as them’ chunters poor Grimes as he eyes the pinstripe suits and their blackberries on the circle line enviously. ‘It’s not fair.’
    In reality you don’t have any serious grasp of what bankers do, although you think you do after reading several articles in the business section of the Guardian, and watching a special programme on BBC1. You know the crisis has something to do with financial “engineering” though you’re not quite sure how this all ties in with normal engineering – science and maths weren’t your strong point at school.
    What keeps you warm at night is the knowledge that all your problems in life are the fault of the bankers – and the Conservatives of course.

    Shouldn’t that read ‘Many years after Black American female thicko school history teacher claims Cleopatra was Black on the basis of no evidence at all (but she would really like it to be true), the BBC has heard of the claim and decided to tell everyone to believe it is true’?

    The Defence calls it’s first witness, Mr Anthony Blair of J P Morgan…..

    What a lot of waffle, look at Comedy Central video of the evisceration of CNBC’s Jim Cramer by John Stewart.
    The bankers are getting the blame, for one good reason, they are to blame.
    Do you know how much commission Madoff paid for getting in his suckers?
    If you went to a reputable University, evidently it was to little purpose.
    Another question, how could it not be the fault of the bankers?

    Cherie Blair is perfect for this job as she has a complete understanding of how to beat the system.

    Ah the Gone West Three. could be a Liebour link here. Wasn’t a Mr P Myners a director of the gone West bank? Well, if they can rub out a scientist who claimed that WMD was total bollocks, they can do anything Remember the really curious suicide of a footballer and the journalist and talk of a paedo ring within government?
