Fsa Fails To Publish Report Into Royal Bank Of Scotland Collapse

Recommended Posts

Senior sources close to the FSA said that the report on RBS, originally promised by Lord Turner, the FSA chairman, in March, was now delayed indefinitely.

We are never going to see it, lol the FSA need to really go like the other regulators, who are they really working for, they are hiding information from the public, seem to me that there are greater problems about the future of UK banking if this report is done to teh standards set out.

How can you run a regulator with directors from investment banks that have a hidden agenda to keep the debt flow and the level of teh crisis covered up.

Its not being released partly because RBS must approve it for fear of litigation in the US.

There really is nothing much to be said anymore. The entire world has been captured by large corporations, the banks and the legal profession. They drive legislation, the legislators and the regulators. We now live in a pure kleptocracy. Your only chance is to be admitted to one of the gangs.

This is all just beyond the pale. Without revolution or economic collapse, there is no hope.

So whats the point of Having the FSA then, if they can't even do what they were established to do, this shows me its a failure.

You'll never hear the truth, at least not from the horses mouth.

There are far too many 'Sirs', 'Dames', 'Lords', MP's, oligarchs, and corrupt regimes to embarrass with the outright truth.

Presumably the problem is that the report will allow Americans to sue the bank or the uk government in some way, causing huge losses to the UK taxpayer again?

We really need a law that makes it impossible for anyone to gain access to taxpayer funds as a result of legal action raised due to negligence or wrong doing by government officials. Legal action should be taken against the individual wrong doers, not the taxpayer.

What about cases like Aberfan ? Unquestionably British Coals responsibility but without any possibility of nailing it on one person .. are you saying they should have got nothing ? (As it happens they got a pathetic amount)

EDIT to say ..

Of course in cases like network rail it was a crime that the shareholders got paid out .

So we now have a failure to even regulate the past misdeeds of the banksters- so what chance of stopping any future one's?

None.

Regulation doesn't work, never has.

ShedDweller,

Basically yes, I am saying that. There are certainly tough cases, but if he taxpayer carries the can, there is no incentive for public officials to act properly or even honestly.

If the officials responsible Aberfan were bankrupted over the event, similar wrongdoing is less likely occur. Failure to hold the individuals accountable, is the major part of the problem.

Parliamentary committee can demand it and place it on the record - parliamentary privilege would defeat any litigation.

here's a term i've just coined for The City and Financials (ac_counting)

hereafter to be known as

City of 'Faux Finance' - it's all an illusion about to fail

(Let's see how fast that gets on a blog or mentioned in a mainstream paper)

One link (from that site) leads to another and it seems some pretty high (former) HBOS directors are under investigation for nodding through a £1Billion fraud.........

How come we have never heard any of this on the BBC?

former directors of the state-rescued and majority-owned bank allegedly knew about, and failed to act on, £1 billion corporate fraud allegations.

How deep does the rabbit hole go for gods sake?

Well I know parliamentary privilege can put the report on the record. But then it could be used as evidence against RBS, which basically means the taxpayer would have to pay if they were sued? And the government might even stop the taxpayer losing money via legislation, but American courts might be able to seize RBS assets in the US.

Oh I see - thought you were talking about the FSA being sued for libel.

They can have the assets. Fark it!

p.s. Tamara has switched female artists?
