    I think you would do best to wait for the results of the formal enquiry (we have them in the UK) and see who is sent to the Tower before you gloat.

    At the moment. all we have heard is the testimony of an American fat cat, lying banker who was referred to, by the regulatory authority before his appointment, as the 'unacceptable face of banking'. The man said nothing of note other than he knew nothing and then went on to cast aspersions on others. The general view was that he lied from start to finish.

    This seems to be yet another story of greedy bankers but we will see. Someone will pay and that is the difference between the sane world and Argentina.
