It's wrong as they're reinforcing bad behaviour. There must be another way of keeping ethical and clever bankers and getting rid of the bad rubbish.

Yep, sounds reasonable to me; but most importantly, just!

Then you obviously know even less about finance and economics than you do about justice. Greedy, callous people are everywhere, only a few of them are bankers. Also be very careful when you call for justice, you might get it, and unless you are a saint it will be far from pleasant. Or do you only want justice meted out to other people? Maybe you advocate a progressive system of justice like the tax code, if your crimes don't reach a certian level someone else can pay your share. Perhaps you are such a bitter, spiteful person you don't mind losing an eye if you can put out two on someone who's sins are greater than your own.

It's all right for Jimmy Carr, he's a comedian making jokes but I just get tired of people talking shit about how evil financiers are. The fact is most people would steal if the payoff were big enough and they thought they could get away with it. By all means dispense justice when you catch them with their hand in the cookie jar but dispense it while admitting the jails wouldn't hold all the people who'd have done the same if they had the chance.

Obviously a retort from an anonymous banker! I didn't make the current financial situation, which affects everyone! Bankers and the Labour government did. Financiers are not evil, they are greedy. I cannot speak for anyone else in the world (as you seem to do), but for me, I would not steal any money, I prefer to work for it; there can't be anything worse than looking over your shoulder for the rest of you life - it's not worth the stress. Ill gotten gains and all!!!

You're starting to come off like a bit of an idiot. Don't believe the hype that Labour caused the banking crisis and the global recession. It's preposterous !

I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror if you're referring to an 'idiot'. I believe the Labour Party deregulated the banks in the UK; if they had not, we would not be in the crisis we are presently in. It's ABSURD to even suggest that Labour had no hand in the banking crisis and the global recession.

You plum. The "global" recession started because American and foreign banks got greedy with the sub prime market as well as increasing the leverage on lower risk mortgages leaving them with more money owed than they held. To say that Labour had any hand in the global recession is frankly joke. But then, so are you!

Latest comment: We all know it all started with foreign banks, however, if labour had not changed legislation and kept the regulations that were in place since the great depression, and if Labour spending had not started in 2000/2001, continued and escalated, by the time of the crash the accelerated national debt and deficit exacerbated the issue, we would not be in such a terrible position as we are now, if any.

It was Mrs Thatcher and Ronald Reagon who de-regulated the financial systems on both sides of the Atlantic as part of the new Global Banking system..I am sure they did not take in to account mans natural greed. This left the door open to what followed and this was not rectified by Blair/ Brown or Bush.
