Spivs scum of the City

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Robbeaus, Jul 1, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Observer today leads with the following [http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jun/30/will-hutton-barclays-banking-reform]

    Investment banking is an organised scam masquerading as a business. It is defined by endemic conflicts of interest, systemic amoral behavior and extreme avarice. Many of its senior figures should be serving prison sentences or disgraced – and would have been if British regulators had been weaned off the doctrine of " light touch" regulation earlier and if the Serious Fraud Office's budget had not been emasculated by Mr Osborne. It is a tax on wealth generation and an enemy of honest endeavor – the beast that is devouring British capitalism.

    Given the Conservative Government whilst in opposition, were so desperate to avoid any regulation, what-so-ever, even to the extent of 'conning' with John Redwoods phoney 2007 report 'Freeing Britain to Compete' []The Conservative Party | News | News | Freeing Britain to Compete, Gordon Brown that a light touch or better still no regulation as the best option. Is the Current Government still fit for purpose? And should the Lib-Dems now jump ship in order to try and save themselves from the voting meltdown that willl undoubtedly follow this shower at the next election?

    None of the main parties is fit for purpose but I'm surprised that you've focused on a meaningless pamphlet from John Redwood rather than on the individuals who developed and applied the actual regulatory system which failed so spectacularly and who now sit on the Opposition benches pretending they had nothing to do with it.

    Much of the Lib Dem vote, or that bit of it which can be bothered, is going to Labour at the next election, which Labour will most likely win - which gives a fair idea of the colossal ineptitude of Call me Dave and his cohorts.

  4. I don't see much light between Ed's Labor and Dave's Tories on The City, both make populist noises but in reality extravagantly fawn over what is after all the core business of UK PLC.

    I can't see that changing, unlike the post-Lehman Swiss the UK electorate is nearly as supine as the Irish were when it comes to being exposed to vast risks, most seem quite unaware of how horribly quickly it all can go wrong despite their neighbors prostrate example. And it probably will end just as badly.
     
  5. Jail the fuckers. And to save money, offshore them to do their time in a prison somewhere cheaper in the world. India, Phillipines, Khazakstan, Angola, Belize...

  6. Why would you want to send them to all those nice warm places. What`s wrong with the South Atlantic? The name of the place is on the tip of my tongue, err
     
  7. Argentina ? You're having a laugh. What with all the 2nd generation Nazis and our bankers they'll be running the world in a few years . Hitler lives in Buenos Aires you know , there was a documentary about it few years back . Bloke from Police Academy got topped trying to expose them
     
  8. We let people think that great uncle Adolf lives in one of the Dago countries. Cream teas are much more to his liking than fried steak.He likes Devon.
     
  9. British Army scum


    Torture & Brutality - British Army Killings


    The fact is, there are thousands of employees within those investment banks and some (about 10) did something wrong, possibly illegal. The others do their job professionally and legally but many don't like it.


    Sound familiar?

    Why not crack on with hewing timber or emptying portable toilets or whatever the fuck it is you do, and leave the making of money to those of us who know the score? We're going to get away with it at the end of the day. We always have. We always will.

    Stick to whining on in the pub. That is to say, the cheap pubs where one cannot park ones car. Stay away from the decent pubs in Notting Hill and Hampstead and bits of Chelsea. It's not like you can afford them and you would stick out like a coalman scratching his nuts at Ascot.

    Jesus. I fucking hate poor people when they think we give a toss what they think.
