The All banks / bankers are evil thread

So here's the place to post all your conspiracy theories, hearsay, falsehoods etc etc about banks and bankers.

I'll get the ball rolling

All bankers are w****rs - a new rhyming slang, its not been used before, oh on, this is totally new, I just made it up when the banking crisis started.

'We' bailed the banks out with 'our' money, yes mine, they took it directly out of my pocket and gave it to themselves as a bonus, bankers.

all the best students are snapped up by banks, so no r&d happens in the uk as they are all bankers - fortunately lots of media studies grads are there to pick up the slack

its all the bankers fault, they MADE people take out loans they couldn't pay back, forced them they did, I saw it with my own 2 eyes

Its a global conspiracy, the lizard men are in control and are just playing us, run, hide, while you still can.

the bankers own the politicians, oh yes, just like little puppies they are.

We don't need the banks or bankers, the country would get along fine without them, they don't pay tax, or employ directly and indirectly hundreds of thousands of people, they just take take take

All of this is true, 100% fact, oh and its not that no bank here would give me a job, oh no, I don't want to work for a bank as it'll make me a total banker, and 'they' would have won, oh yes, they didn't turn me down, I didn't want to work for them

Man goes to bank. Borrows lots of money. Cannot pay it back. Bank at fault - should not have lent man money. Bank evil. Did it for "profit". "Profit" also evil. Man poor lamb.

Only one is evil and the other stupid, though both greedy. The only dishonest bit is, bank lend the money that was not there in the first place.

Have you heard the collective noun for a group of bankers is officially a "wunch".

Re: The All banks / bankers are evil thread

I have nothing against bankers that stick to banking. Its when they think they're clever and start playing roulette with derivatives chips that they become tiresome and dangerous. In the same way nothing wrong with accountants that stick to counting - just don't put them in charge of the company and for goodness sake keep them away from customer communications.

That's what money is though - confidence. Confidence in the issuing authority, and yes, because of the multiplier, confidence in banks. Money isn't wealth. In fact it could be said to be anti-wealth, in that the more of it there is, the less it's worth.

I believe that the bankers are sponsoring homeopaths, in order to make us all sicker, and forcing us to pay more in our health insurance premiums.

Where did it go when they asked the State for rescue packages? Are you suggesting their was a bank heist of the century, even millenia that we were not told of?

Another conspiracy, huh!

I once paid a penny into my bank account along with several tonnes of water.

I'm still living on the proceeds today.

You mean, dumping excess supply of money in the sea would help "up" its value (worth)?
