The sight of Bob Diamond coming out of his offices with his red scarf made me see red too, even more than usual. Not content with playing a part in bringing the economy to its knees, and then awarding himself a huge bonus for this massive failure, it now appears that his organisation has been lying and playing games with interest rates in order to make the bank more profitable. I hope they throw the book at them.
Meanwhile, we’ve made up our minds. We’ve been with Barclays for 25 years but I am sick of all these shenanigans and the way that ethics have been trampled on and despised. We’re going to change to ethical banking. I’m going to look at the Co-op – it has a good write-up, and some of our kids use it and are very satisfied. http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/green-living-blog/2012/feb/10/ethical-bank-account
