Well they weren't kept quiet - as they were all in the news

Heads have begun to roll in Barclays and more to follow because other institutions are implicated including the Bank of England-ref the Libor scandal.

What the public would really like to see is criminal prosecutions.

But dont hold your breath.

Of course my reply to the other poster was a rhetorical one ..........

And yes indeedy they were/ ...

No I agree, common human failings.

I appreciate the point you implied that British politicians are sanctimonious hypocrites though. Or maybe its all politicians, everywhere. Bunch of t*ts.

Pollies in pretty much every country are idiots. The people who should be leading us are elbows deep in trying to help at a grass roots level while "The best of equals" gorge themselves in the public tax pools, giving themselves endless pay rises while mismanaging the economy and society at large.

Those few individuals who go into politics with good intentions are soon bullied out or cowed into towing the line for the fat cat super groups. Alice would have a better chance of changing the  Red Queens mind than voters citizens would of getting our "leaders" to use common sense.

I remember that TV series "Yes Minister" and it was in part a parody of that same situation you cite  .........

A politician entering with the best intentions only to be changed and used by the underlying bureaucracy which does not change with elections ...........

That same bureaucracy is probably the inherent control structure of the Elites who control all ...........
