        I did not write this but totally agree with the view expressed........
        Our banks exposure to ‘credit default swops’ the continuation of short selling and other casino economy activities by the banks is a massive financial time bomb. When Greece defaults followed by Italy the impact will be like nuclear bomb hitting everyone but the supper rich elite. Ring fence the banks now. Prohibit short selling now. Introduce a Tobin Tax now. Do everything that is possible to isolate the impact of ‘credit default swops’ today. Set up a green investment bank and expand the mutual finance sector. Set up a People’s Commission / Audit to investigate who is really responsible for hijacking our national wealth

        This is a historic moment – the Vickers Report only starts to scratch the surface of this scandal and theft of our shared national wealth and future

        The bankers have gotten away with it again transferring huge amounts of private debt to the public. What a racket. And ordinary people will be payign it for for years to come.

        I whole heartedly agree but governments are not powerful enough to influence banks unless several countries act together so I do not think there is much we can do even if UK government wanted to
