Britain Has Most Greedy Bankers

Vernon Coleman

Since the people of Britain shocked the High and Mighty by voting to leave the EU, the Establishment has lied, lied and lied again. They have employed all the tricks which I describe as ‘intellectual terrorism’.

Consider Carney, the boss at the Bank of England and the Fear-monger General.

Carney is a Canadian who likes the good life. He is an ex Goldman Sachs banker and a director of the Bank for International Settlements. (That’s the bank which funded the Nazi party in 1930s and 1940s, helped the Nazis steal gold from the Jews and made sure that Hitler had enough money to bomb London.)

The Governor of the Bank of England is supposed to be apolitical. But Carney clearly hasn’t read that bit in his contract.

He has been very political. His latest claim was that Brexit would result in a 30% drop in house prices. This piece of egregious nonsense helped wreck the housing market.

But Carney hasn’t been alone in predicting gloom.

The London Stock Exchange Group commissioned research which predicted that 232,000 bankers and other assorted wankers would lose their jobs because of Brexit.

They were slightly out.

In fact, just 2,000 jobs were lost.

And the bankers who are left are still rolling in dough.

Although the rest of us have struggled since the crash caused by the bankers, the bankers themselves have just got richer and richer.

Last year an astonishing 4,859 bankers in the EU earned at least 1 million euros each.

And 3,567 of those were working in the UK. Britain has approximately three quarters of all the greediest bankers in Europe!

The average pay for those 3,567 UK bankers was around £2 million a year.

How many of them were worth that sort of money?

Approximately none.

(Remember we had to bail out the banks in 2008 when they fucked up.)

There isn’t a banker in the world worth more than £100,000 a year.
