How governments and banks are allowed to carry on like this is a f*cking mystery. Take all your money out of the bank. If enough people do it watch how they'll change the way they treat us!

Latest comment: This video is really unhelpfully biased. Claims like "EU countries have never been further apart" are so wrong as to be farcical, as anyone who even attended a primary school history class knows. A good proportion of the EU's current member states were not even at the table 20 years go and a sizable chunk of Germany didn't join in until the end of the 80s! "This was meant to bring Europe together, it has not" - can't say that as a British man working and living freely in Germany with my Polish wife (who is also working without restrictions) that I agree with the speaker's crass generalisations. Not least because when her parents come to visit they no longer need to save up for 6 months to do so because of a weak currency. Nor do i have to fear that sending my kids to visit them might mean them not getting back across the border.
