      I see Dave’s finally got the hang of this inquiry thing. Placing your own people in charge is always the place to start. All he’s got to do now is make sure the ending is on script..

      I trust he will also ensure that Balls is given a jolly rogering set piece.

        dave bothered me when he said of this banking commission thingy that ‘he’d be giving them all the resources they need.

        Now if he’s talking about allowing them to access the taxpayer subsidised HoC restaurant for 1 hour each lunchtime – fine! But if he’s talking of paying them over and above their already generously remunerated salaries for anything including overtime – then I am opposed!

          • Ben Bernanke once shared an office with Mervyn King and I bet he and other Central Bankers and Treasury officials around the world will not want their august institutions dragged into this mess.

            So Dave is offering up London as the global scapegoat for all the bad stuff that banks do because no one else in their right mind wants this shit storm now while the Eurozone and China are going tits up and Egypt and Syria are kicking off.

            This is a righteous and deserving cause, but incredibly bad timing, just like Foxy and the EU question.

            The idea that the central banks and various governments around the world didn’t know what was happening at these 20 odd international banks in the City of London seems a bit far-fetched to me.

    How can Ed Scrotum keep a straight face when he claims that he didn’t see the banking crash coming?

    Northern Rock failed a whole YEAR before the banking collapse and surely banks giving out 125% mortgages and self certified mortgages should have been questioned?

    The BBC scum keep trying to blame Thatcher (as they always do) yet if you got a mortgage in the pre Labour 90’s you still had to have a good deposit and you couldn’t borrow any more than 2.5 – 3 times your income.

    The problems all started once Liebore came to power and no drug taking mongs at the BBC can change that fact.

            Northern Rock, Brandford and Bingley both failed because they were lending money to people they knew if there was a housing market downturn (as there always is from time to time) and had fuck all to do with it all starting in America.

            Lloyds failed because the one eyed shirt lifter from Fife (triumphed by Peston from the BBC) persuaded Lloyds to do him a favour and take HBOS off his hands. In doing so, the one eyed cretin poisoned a good bank. That had fuck all to do with “it all starting in America”

            It is true that that under the Democrats in America they also lent money to people who could never afford to pay it back, but the mess hre in the UK was caused by the one eyed idiot and his fat Nazi uniform wearing boyfriend.

    ….but moreso for an interview with a Reuters guy from NYC who said he’d discussed the apparent LIBOR rate rigging with the BBA back in 2008. He went on to say that it seemed common knowledge with bankers / regulators etc and without the LIBOUR manipulation our banking crisis might have been far deeper.

    If it was common knowledge and the rigging was in the national interest, what did Brown and Balls know? Some papers did report this at the time and it was being investigated from around 2007 – it is inconceivable that the FSA would not tell Ministers what was happening.

    Balls looked a bit sick when Gideon said the inquiry would look at what previous Govt knew. If they did know, it might just be the begining of the end of the road for him and Brown? Perhaps some Tories should be calling for them to step down.

    Don’t know whether it is true or not but a woman told me over a cuppa after giving blood today that on a tv programe about how Notting Hill has changed over the years, some investment banker had said that all the money taxpayers paid to shore up the banks went to enabling him, and his cronies to buy these £12 million mansions. If there is any element of truth in this, Clegg needs to see if there can be prosecutions for misuse of public money or something (surely our government weren’t stupid enough to say to the banks here is a wad of cash now go and bonus yourself to heaven out of it while we tell people it is for lending). At best that banker shows that the city doesnt give a fig. But hey ho the cynic in me thinks as long as the Tories get their party funding and post governmnet jobs for the boys who cares.

    Well every business that is strugling cares. Every employee who has lost or is nearling loosing their job cares.

If the reports of discussions being held between Barclays executives and BoE senior staff are true, then Barclays may have acted either under the impression that the BoE supported their actions, or officially sanctioned it. It’s hard to imagine that if the BoE knew or encouraged, the Treasury was totally in the dark…

    I’ve observed that people have a problem embracing anarchy as a political system to aspire to. The ideal scenario for me would be loads of self supporting villages surrounded by farmland populated by well educated folk. All the mundane manufacturing will be done by self replicating robotic devices in specialized areas such as Birmingham. Clearly a zero growth arrangement like that would require a huge reduction in the population because of the available land but I am sure that were such an endeavor to be attempted the population would see no need for laws and governments and just get on having fun and making stuff ( in a sustainable way)
