The bankers should be regulated by the police, not the FSA. Do the police and CPS really need the FSA to confirm that this is corruption and fraud before they act? ... It's ludicrous really.

Not only do I think that bankers should face criminal charges for fraud and corruption, I think that this proposal should be extended to the Government and the police force... Which leaves one slight problem, who will enforce the policies? or who will pass new laws criminalizing these activities to begin with..

I see another long drawn-out 'Leveson Enquiry' at the tax payers expense and no real change in the way that any of our institutions are run.

No matter what the little man wants.. it's the big boys who call the shots...and there's nothing we can do about it

The One in Five minority will be the winners i suspect :(

LONDON (Reuters) - Barclays Plc Chief Executive Bob Diamond quit on Tuesday under a barrage of fire from politicians, the highest-profile casualty of an interest rate-rigging scandal that spans more than a dozen major banks across the world.

"The external pressure placed on Barclays has reached a level that risks damaging the franchise - I cannot let that happen," Diamond said in a statement six days after Britain's third-largest bank was fined nearly half a billion dollars for its part in manipulating a global benchmark interest rate.

Diamond's resignation was effective immediately. Outgoing chairman Marcus Agius will lead the search for a new CEO, despite having announced his own imminent departure a day earlier, declaring that "the buck stops with me".

Despite sending a long letter to staff on Monday that showed his resolve to continue, Diamond decided to quit later that day after Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne announced a parliamentary inquiry into the scandal, a person familiar with the matter said.


I suppose quitting is better than facing criminal prosecution... I wonder what his golden handshake will be?

Diamond will still appear on Wednesday before the parliamentary committee probing the scandal, with Agius appearing on Thursday. The inquiry will report by the end of the year and influence the government's financial sector reforms.


Not really any surprises then.. The main reforms will probably be to introduce an higher level of encryption algorithms on the banks email system and to open a scape-goat department which will ensure that no more CEO's have to endure the public scorn and treatment that ol' Bob has had to cope with.

Here's the golden handshake... The guy deserves it for taking one for the team!
Bob Diamond could be entitled to a pay-off of between £20 and £30 million it emerged this afternoon despite being forced to resign of chief executive of Barclays over the rate rigging scandal.


Read the full article here: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/ho ... 05494.html

Within minutes of Mr Diamond’s decision being officially announced the Chancellor George Osborne went on the radio to welcome the news as “the right decision for Barclays (and) the right decision for the country”.


Yeah.. this is justice ... pffft!
