The Mail’s City editor Alex Brummer shows beyond reasonable doubt that its excesses and crimes reflect not the isolated actions of a few scoundrels, but a culture corrupt from top to bottom. Since 2008, it has often been said that we shall see no penitence from those who run the banking industry until some of the crooks in charge have gone to jail. The bankers’ lack of shame suggests this is true.Whilst I'm sure Theresa May would be happy to oblige, one wonders if official efforts are not being blocked at high level by the corrupt cronyism that is the hallmark of Cameron's government?
