Bank Squad

One minute Cardinal Wolsey was the most powerful man in the Kingdom under the Sovereign, the next he was as helpless as a peasant, owning just the clothes on his back as gruff blokes with pole-arms ransacked his chests of clothes and valuables. The illusion of invulnerability is as easily shattered as that, and if the government had the will we could start on Monday with a new Bank Squad

Just six strong, made up of two of the CPS' brightest lawyers, a brace of ace forensic auditors and a pair of skilled interrogators from the SAS, all sworn in today as Special Constables and under a Met DAC, with a District Judge issuing warrants over the weekend, they could be on Diamond's doorstep at 6am Monday Morning (in the Maxwell manner, with press photographers present) and rummaging  through his knicker-draw by 6.30, carrying out his home computers by 9am and huge plastic bags of papers by lunchtime.

I wonder if Mrs Diamond will look as photogenic as Pandora ....

Speaking of photogenic Raedwald...

I am reminded of that wonderful morning in 1997, when Ms. Cheri Booth delighted us on her doorstep.

Much as I despise him, it seems like Miliband is making the running on this issue.

The fact that it was Brown and Balls who cocked-up the system of banking regulation which allowed this behaviour to take place is history - most of the ignorant electorate won't have ever known that, let alone remember it.

Cameron and Osborne look out of touch - again. Not surprising I suppose when you see who funds their Party these days now they have barely 170,000 members.

If Cameron doesn't shift gear on banking reform and Plod find a way to prosecute Diamond and the rest of the fraudsters, Miliband is going to clean-up on this one.

Combined with Cameron's announced determination to keep us in the EU by denying us a Referendum - it seems like the arrogance of Office has badly infected him in only 2 years.

Agreed with DeeDee99. BTW, when did Cameron denounce a referendum? Was it recently?

No chance, he would get an inside tip off from No.10 or 11, be out the country in a couple of hours headed for a jurisdiction where he would be protected and safe.

Vince Cable should be asked why he allowed RBS and Lloyds to participate in the Liebor scam, which the FSA - and therefore ministers - have known about for years.

Revolting behaviour by all of the Establishment (except Her Maj and co). I think it's about time we plebs became revolting too...

And now for something completely different. When did you lose the "pithy" from your comments link? And the dogs? How are they? The boat(s)? Still floating? What happened about the red diesel issue?

Cheers,
Captain Fatty

Let you have a mortgage ?
Cute !
Let me see....they allocate a balance towards your account with out actually giving you anything, you buy the house with no cash involved and you pay them interest and fees on nothing.
All that time the house belongs to them...so if you fail, or they fail, the house is theirs.
Meanwhile, they're only operating because their zero-balance is guaranteed by the government....or us if you like.
So the state owns their assets...which is your mortgage...
Hmmmm..................
Meanwhile, as long as people are right, left or indecisive, the politicians wander along...supporting themselves...
