Last week, 27 July 2009, bankers were rushed into the Treasury at high speed in chauffeur-driven cars with blacked-out windows for an emergency meeting with Chancellor Alistair Darling. The burning questions on Darling’s lips – why are you not lending more and why are you not passing on the interest rate to your customers? Something I’ve been asking every time I look at my loan repayment plan.
Tuesday 4 August and the news headlines are of bankers taking £4bn in bonuses, citing “business as usual” – a stupendous slap on the back for all the great work they have done.
Has anyone thought to ask the question; did the Lloyds/HBOS funds get mixed up in the City bonus bin?
