    These are NOT extra profits: they have come about due to sell-offs of assets they shouldn't have purchased and the sackings of people due to management failure.

    Never forget that in a correctly run business the workers WORK and the management are responsible for the correct management of those workers. It's usually only when weak management bow down to the unions or have bone-headed management that companies go tits-up. HSBC is no different.
