What Was Rachel’s Bonus?

Labour rent-a-fog-horn Rachel Reeves has been in the headlines again today calling for “those with the broadest shoulders and those with responsibility for creating the crisis” to be made to pay. What about those that have subsequently left the financial sector?  

Reeves worked for HBOS from 2006 to 2009. If she’s going to continue proposing historical punishments for failure, should she not declare any bonus payments she received in that time and whether she waived them? How much was her bonus?

Did she even deserve one for “exceptional work”After all HBOS ended up partially state-owned when Lloyds Banking Group was bailed out…

        You English are really so fucking stupid.

        If you elect 650 twats to Parliament you get the Government you deserve.

        2.5 million of you have no jobs and you do not know how many others are on short time hours with another 500000hidden away as disabled yet you spend your time talking about a fucking Arab who hates you not being sent to Jordan to face a trial pending against him there.

        All you have to do is keep him in jail and let the trial proceed in Jordan by video link. If he is found guilty with no untoward evidence send him to Jordan. If he is found not guilty just kick him out the country.

        You should really look at yourselves at times.

        You really are next to useless.

          Home Secretary May was convinced in Parliament today that the mahomedan preacher would be sent to Jordan within three months, She refused to countenance any othe option so if she doesn’t follow your advice or manage to dispose of this turd in time we could be seeing him on the streets of Blighty in three months time. Walking free to preach his filthy mahomedan bile and hoodwinking loads of muslim born Brits into more acts of terror.

            Every fuck-up in recent history has had a ‘Downfall’ parody but he has to take offence because it has to be targetting him personally as a Nazi. Oh really? Labour losing a seat in a by-election in Fucking Glasgow to the S&P had Brown in a ‘Downfall’ parody. A football team loses a match and their manager gets a ‘Downfall’ parody.

He is delivering some of the savings he has spoken about.

    The NHS may well be recognised as an effective and efficent delivery sytem of health care , but that does not omitt it from being wastefull or in need of a bit of a tune up . Everyone accepts it has to reform , not only for ecnomic reasons but for new treatment regimies .
    most of the beef has been centered round primary care trusts , will no labour politician acknowledge that it was some of these trusts that ran into debts on there watch,where was Burnhams great answer to the waste problem when in office whilst these debts were run up , please sir can i have some more differed taxation to cover my incompetence…?
    wheres the evidence on the cherry picking accusation …. not really any is there ….
    By all means give Alan milburn somthing to do with his talents , but shouldnt he be helping Mr Burnhams dire embarrasment first ! who like his shadow cahncellor is uanble to say that where he would cut the NHS , rather than reform on slightly increased /protected budget .

            Credit was regulated into existence.

            What it was “invested” in was de-regulated, but the important thing to understand was the progressive taxation’s NEED for more credit.

          Lord Mandelson says:

          SUNDAY, 23 AUGUST 2009
          Lord Mandelson concluded that bankers were scammers

          Lord Mandelson stated that “The rewards (for bankers) need to be linked to risks. The problem is when excessive rewards start driving excessive risk taking.” An enterprise has no choice: it must take a risk in the course of the business operations. This is in a nature of the economy. However it must always be a calculated commercial risk. It can be never an “excessive risk”. Taking”excessive risk” is a legal wrong and, if it caused any damage, it must be pursued under civil law to obtain compensation from”excessive risk takers”. It must also be investigated under criminal law. As Lord Mandelson effectively admitted bankers were rewarded for “excessive risk taking” since he was referring to the current crisis not some hypothetical situation. Hence, according to Lord Mandelson, bankers committed fraud. As explained in the seminal article on this blog, “The largest heist in history” the mechanism of this “excessive risk taking”, i.e. fraud, was turning the global banking system into a giant pyramid scheme.

          It is very refreshing and encouraging that a very senior British government official, effectively the Deputy of the Prime Minister, admitted that the financial community committed fraud from which it benefited. He was very clear that “taking excessive risk” was a euphemism for committing fraud. The taxpayers have all the right now to demand that the government will draw the conclusions from the Lord Mandelson’s words: pursue a huge number of financiers on the charges of fraud and confiscate their wealth in order to compensate the taxpayers for the result of this fraud.

Blair knew Brown was insane but lacked the will to get rid of him – preferring to jet about the globe glad-handing folk like some celebrity politician. And Brown was happy to borrow money and create pretendy jobs and announce initiative after initiative time after time all funded with borrowed money. All the time briefing against Blair. Undermining any other potential rivals. Waiting for he moment to strike.

    Awoke one night from a dream of release
    And saw, within the shadows in his cell
    Flickering light, as like the fires of hell:
    A justice, writing in a book of ash:-
    Incarceration had made Abu rash,
    And to the Presence in the cell he said
    “What writest thou?” – The justice raised his head,
    And with a look made of all Strasbourg cant
    Answered “The names of those allowed to rant”
    “And is mine one?” said Abu. “Yea indeed”,
    Replied the judge. Abu smiled indeed,
    And tried his luck, and said “I pray thee, then
    Bail me that I may rant again.”

    The justice wrote, and vanished. The next night
    After the Daily Mail had written some old shite
    It came as no surprise – the politicians failed
    And Abu was let out on bail.

    Rachel Reeves said on Newsnight that bonuses were for doing ‘something exceptional’.

    In 2006, before she joined HBOS, she worked at the Bank of England where 1606 out of 1744 people got bonuses, presumably including Ms. Reeves. Presumably that is because they were all exceptional – so exceptional that the whole financial sector was at the brink of collapse.
