Bank bailout and the labour manifesto.
« on: May 14, 2017, 10:22 PM »
Hi All, When the banks went into a self inflicted tail spin, due to their crass greed in 2008, We, the taxpayers bailed the banks out to the tune of 100 BILLION pounds. Since then the banks have made billions in profits and handed out massive bonuses to their top management.
What have we, the taxpayers, recieved in return??, nothing!! the money given to the banks was interest free. I therefore agree with the labour manifesto concerning a 'Robin Hood' tax on the banking system. Why should we as taxpayers have to support a greedy banking system? it is only right that they now help to fund our failing NHS, and other worthy social initiatives.

Hope all is well with you Vanessa?


Just a thought......

This definition tells you all you need to know about 'PC'
PC, aka, Political Correctness, is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority (Liberals/Socialists) and promoted by the mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is possible to pick up faeces by the clean end.
