Tories bank on money
IF THERE was any doubt, we now know exactly whose side the Conservatives are on. The bankers of course – not you or me – we don’t earn millions of pounds.
Even the much-criticised European Union has decided that enough is enough. They voted 26 to 1 that bankers will be limited to one year’s salary. That in itself runs into millions of pounds. Who voted against – you guessed it – George Osborne, the Tory Chancellor.
After the casino culture by the bankers, which resulted in the financial crisis of the past five years, we have all been paying the price. This excludes the bankers themselves, who have paid themselves even more. So the Tories this time instead of shooting a fox, have shot themselves in the foot.
