Banker Gaoled
« on: August 03, 2015, 16:18:04 pm »
Fraudster Tom Hayes who cheated his banking customers through fixing LIBOR rates - and said he didn't know he was doing anything wrong because everyone was doing it! - has been sent to gaol for 14 years. When a hundred of his banking colleagues have joined him, particularly those at the top, I'll feel a little happier about the UK's banking system. Not much - but a little.

First serious successful prosecution by the SFO since Leason.  Which doesn't say much for the UK justice when dealing with banking and financial crime.  Better he should have been sent to USA for trial.  They do things better there when prosecuting these greedy, cheating robbers, an orange jump suit and led into the courtroom in chains and manacles, sentences of 99 years in state pen.  Mind you even that doesn't seem to stop them.  I guess the rewards far outweigh the risks of getting caught and prosecuted, particularly in the UK.  Especially for the Bank Directors, none of whom we have seen prosecuted yet, but I live in hope.

  To be fair the UK police have far more important things to do.

  Like chasing and prosecuting celebrities that touched a tit  40 years ago.

  Priorities innit.

  The Bankers and the 400 plus child rapist's in Rotherham can wait.!!
