Is it just me that thinks it's a bit rich (he he!) that when everything in the world of high finance is going swimmingly it's because of the skill and steady nerve of the traders and directors in the big banks, but when it goes tits up it's because of global economic conditions and it's completely beyond their control?
Can I ask: Who created those Global Economic Conditions if not the Bankers (It's a tempting rhyme, but I'm resisting it!) themselves?
And isn't it a little hypocritical to expect to be bailed out now by tax-payers' money when the last thing they've wanted for the last 20+ years was government interference while they feathered their next and bought that extra yacht?
Am I the only one wondering why we're propping up a system which has so patently and obviously been proven unfit for purpose? Should we now be looking at ways to re-organise the world's financial markets to prevent this from happening again?
What are the steps that would prevent it (apart from shooting all the fuckwit Bankers, of course)? Is the ONLY option to give them our money so they can lend it back to us?
