Credit Card Charges: Bankers 'would have been shot'

If they existed in Stalin's Russia instead of twenty-first century Britain, bankers would have been shot for their greed.

That is according to the Daily Mail columnist Max Hastings, writing in the newspaper today (December 10th).

He described Alistair Darling's 50 per cent levy on bankers' bonuses as "raising a cheer across the land", and went on to describe how they had "institutionalised the bonus culture".

The one-off tax announced by the chancellor in the Pre-Budget report this week is expected to affect 20,000 bank employees and raise £500 million.

Hastings wrote of the recent round of bonuses: "Many of the recipients possess limited talents – if they were cleverer, the financial crisis would not have happened."
