Who is the odd one out?

Bob Diamond, Eric Daniels, Fred Goodwin, Stuart Gulliver, Stephen Hester, a random looter

The random looter of course.  He’s just a petty thief.

STOP THIEVES! £9 Million Banker Robbers

with 23 comments

£9 Million Getaway By Gulliver And Geoghegan

HSBC’s new chief executive Stuart Gulliver has been awarded a £5.2 million bonus for 2010 on top of his £1 million salary.  His predecessor, Michael Geoghegan, gets a £3.8 million bonus on top of a £2 million salary.

It will be little comfort to the taxpayers of Britain that Douglas Flint, HSBC’s chairman,  said the group would “not forget” the financial crisis and support from governments around the world, and that they entered 2011 “with humility”.   These are crocodile tears of the most insincere and deceitful kind.

The only reason that HSBC has been able to make these enormous profits and that these two banker robbers have stolen such obscene bonuses, is that taxpayers have guaranteed their sordid, dishonest and destructive businesses.  More fool us.
