Bankers Get Their Bonuses. Fat Cats Get Fatter

Barclays is set to award its 22,000 investment bankers pay rises of up to 150% in an effort to beat Government moves to clamp down on multi-million-pound bonuses.

150%? What a world we live in. A world where the people that have put us in the economic mess that we are now in are not only allowed to have bonuses, but actually think that they deserve them.

If any of us in any other occupation had acted as they had, we'd be out of a job, never mind not get a bonus. Why do we put up with these fat cats. They need us, and if they continue to bit the hands that feed them, it's only a matter of time before we say enough is enough.

It was only last week that we found out that the government had secretly given the banks £62 billion pounds to help get them out of their own mess. How can you give away 62 million pounds of other people's money without telling anyone?

I used to laugh at people that hid their savings under their mattresses, now I'm starting to think that they had the right idea.
