    Oh you have to love this sh!t!! This is so typical Anglo-saxon mind at work.

    “Ms Lambie said that fines for foreign exchange or Libor rigging, or consumer product mis-selling, still produce high levels of revenue for the UK authorities.”

    So what the banks or saying is “Hey, we acted criminally defrauding millions upon millions in all fields of banking, and see how this contributes to the economy and the treasury!”

    If it wasn't so sad it would be comical. Actually it is so sad it came back around to the comical level again.

    This is the same philosophy as “We raped 1/5 of the world during Empire, but hey we brought you the telegraph”.

    Anglos WILL be Anglos.

    4 no corruption and no criminality

    “...their tax returns say they complied with UK tax rules. ”

    unlike Argentina that steals $70b and refuses to repay it, or CFK raiding the treasury

    This is a global problem. It could be solved easily by taxing banks and large corporations in other ways. Failure to think creatively is a characteristic of pedants and fools.

    @1. Have you noticed that, in argieland, companies can use losses in the last 5 years to reduce their tax bill. Then there's the generally applicable argie company tax rate of 35%. Seems that argies must be anglos.

    Argeland owes billions. Just in the US. It owes billions more around the world. Typical argie criminality. Don't pay despite court orders. Worldwide thieves.
