Bank Charges: Poll confirms public anger at banks

The public desire for a crackdown on the excessive banking culture has been highlighted in the findings of a new poll.

Compass, a left-leaning thinktank[comma] commissioned the YouGov study, which revealed that some 75 per cent of people do not trust that the banks are being properly regulated.

The poll also showed that more than two-thirds of those questioned called for a cap on excessive bonus schemes.

Compass general secretary Gavin Hayes said: "There is massive support for tougher action on banks; never again can we allow the financial sector to bring down the entire economy."

In addition, there was widespread support for Chancellor Alistair Darling's introduction of a one-off supertax of 50 per cent for bonuses of £25,000 or more, with 59 per cent of respondents backing the scheme.

The much talked about Robin Hood Tax, which has the support of major charities and celebrities, also seems to have drawn public interest.

Over half of people pledged their support to the proposals for a financial transactions levy, which would see a 0.05 per cent tax taken from transactions of in excess of £1,000.
