I am all for regulating the banks, but it has to be done at a global level. Bashing banks here might not make them move straight away, but it means they will expand in Singapore or Mumbai instead of in London.

The sooner this communist defects to Labour, the happier he will be, and the happier we will be.

Yet again Cable proves he is a danger to the economy of this country, even though he knows very well just how much this country is dependent on the financial sector. If Cameron wants to keep it in this country, he must grasp the nettle and sack Cable forthwith.

It doesn't add up...

The BoE published its estimate than UK banks received subsidies worth over £100bn in 2009 via the rigging of interest rate markets and credit ratings it granted them. Peston blogged some details. It is surely a simple matter to tell banks that those who are perceived to transgress in fair dealing (including but not limited to the award of unmerited bonuses) will see their support from the BoE evaporate. That would be far more effective than any regulation.
