Usual apology if this has already been done

Now this seems like a neat idea to me. Its not a tax on bank accounts but a tax on transactions between financial institutions. Even the banks seem to be infavour of it and it could be a way of builing up a fund to compensate those who lose money from events like last years catastrophe when the banking system crashed. This in turn could lead to a re establishment of confidence in the banking system. Some of the dosh raised could be used to pay the horrendous debt the government is running up too. I am not a finance bloke, so I throw the subject open to those more versed in such matters for your opinions.

A good thing?
