Attack Of The Zombie Bankers

Recommended Posts

I think this is genuine:

Zombie bankers are to descend upon Canary Wharf to feast on public servants on the release date of the final report of the Independent Commission on Banking.

At 6.30pm on 12th September, over 100 members of the public dressed as Zombie bankers will stage a flash-mob outside Canary Wharf tube station where they will 'feed' on doctors, nurses, teachers and other public sector workers in a spectacular orgy of fake blood and gore.

The flash-mob is the culmination of a viral campaign by the Department of Corporate Sustenance, a pretend government department. Information about the Department was revealed over a number of weeks through a sinister poster campaign, advertisements on social networking sites, a

and a 'hack' of the Department's website.

Actually, it looks like an interesting satire on the banking disaster - here's spoof documentation on the department of corporate sustenance:

I don't suppose these protests matter, it won't change anything, as much as I dispise having our taxes propping up the banks, and the continuation of big bonuses. It's so insulting to every tax payer.

I'll never understand why the government bailed them out in the first place. it hasn't improved anything :huh:

Hi - if you want to change the way things are in the UK get political, or start an army or something else that's actually hard work. This satire and fun crap just doesn't make any difference.

Flash mobs are a load of shite. Post it on youtube. Have people pass it around on facebook. Fire and forget.

Oh - and flash mob. If you are organising it days in advance isn't it just a very small meeting where you have no constructive agenda where you happen to be dressed like idiots?

Good for them for doing something but this is just a total waste of time. If you want to effect change it needs to have more substance.

It probably wont change anything but doing something is better than doing nothing.

Yeah that's right, 'cos the banking crisis didn't affect any private sector workers. A baby can see who's behind this stunt.

TMP Online. Is that The Masked Tulip Online? We should be told.

Dyslexia rules KO.

How about The Masked Petunia Online?

Sigh.........................................

What a load of socialist pet peev b@llocks.

Trying to present bankers as the cause of all that's wrong in our country and civil servants as innocent victims is just so pathetic missing the point. Banks would not have been able to do anything if it was not for government dicking around with our money and amongst other things employing far too many civil servants.

The type of people who will think this idiotic display is a good idea will be the same sort of people who think that the bnakers principle sin is not lending at 2007 levels any more.

Desperate blaming the government. Like the idiot Americans blaming Carter and some obscure democrats for the sub prime fiasco.

Yes those poor bankers, forced to lend badly with a gun held to their heads. Of course the reality judging by these latest law suits was widespread fraud.

And who is at the heart of the government, advising and buying the "democratic" process?Yup Goldmans, JP Morgans etc..

We want our government back. Not a bank captured sham democracy, with the whole countries economy rigged for the personal enrichment of a few.

I think they could have their uses. Imagine an organised rent strike where flash mobs are called out when the bailiffs turn up.

Mr Steed, no offence but its clear you don't really understand the issues and won't let yourself understand anyway, so I will keep this brief.

Desperate blaming the government. Like the idiot Americans blaming Carter and some obscure democrats for the sub prime fiasco.

Yes, government manipulating the rules is the reason why this time it was the asset class 'property' that bubbled. But the reason we were always going to have a bubble in something post the expansion in the monetary base post 2000 was the central planning in money steaming from the fed and BoE.

Yes those poor bankers, forced to lend badly with a gun held to their heads.

Yes those poor teachers and nurses who took out liar loans to buy over priced properties...

Banks AND civil servants buying property responded entirely rationally to the pricing signals they received. The problem was that the pricing signals were badly wrong because of central planning in the money supply, including but not limited to lowering capital reserves requirements, artificial low interest rates and government attacks on the saving ratio. All of which increased the monetary base into bubble territory.

Banks make money by buying low selling high like all business, they could get money very cheap so they lent it cheap. But money was only cheap because of central planning from the Fed and BoE.

Of course the reality judging by these latest law suits was widespread fraud.

Oh please, any half wit can see straight through those, what utter tosh. What are they going to do, fine them and then bail them out to pay for the fine. Government and central banks wrote the rule book anyway.

And who is at the heart of the government, advising and buying the "democratic" process?Yup Goldmans, JP Morgans etc..

No, they are just smart enough to play the game. Hate the game not the players. if politicians were not so desperate to bribe their way back into office with give away's every single time the game would not be so rigged that these entities could profit from the distortions government create.

We want our government back. Not a bank captured sham democracy, with the whole countries economy rigged for the personal enrichment of a few.

Who have the wrong target, because like most lefties you can only see the symptoms but not understand the underlying cause.

This is a bloody good idea, we should all go on rent strike until our landlords get repossessed and then buy up their property cheap! :D

Clever people. This reminds me of similar approach in USA.

This is a war of ideas, a PR war, and this is a clever way of communicating the issue in a way which will get picked up on by media, and be understood. I applaud those involved.

Just to clarify here- I am right in thinking that risk assessment is the core skill required to be a competent lender of money?

After all a banker who was incapable of risk assessment would be entirely useless, is that not so?

So to suggest that the mere existence of cheap money led to a complete loss of self control on the part of the bankers does not inspire confidence. No matter how much cheap money was available this did not negate the need to assess risk in lending.

So your portrayal of the Banking community as greedy morons totally without self control does rather lend weight to the conclusion that they are primarily to blame for this mess.

In reality they failed to accurately assess the risks they were running- in part because the gains they made from propagating this failure were just too good to pass up.

And- having created a mountain of ill judged debt and paying themselves billions while doing so- they come whining to us for never ending bailouts to avoid the consequences.

They are socially useless, dangerously incompetent, morally bankrupt, arrogant shites, with a vast sense of entitlement and zero remorse for the pain they have caused.

I look forward to the impending implosion of their rotten institutions because at least when I go down I want the satisfaction of seeing them go down with me.

A myth.

There is very very considerably more regulation today then there was in the 80's and 90's.

No, because as I said the pricing signals became distorted along with the expansionary money supply, so that would have also stimulated fax demand that would only become apparent after contraction.

Now Austrian economists would have seen it all coming, so you could argue that banks were at fault for not all using the Austrian perspective and I love that argument. However, it is a million miles from what the morons in zombies suits are suggesting, if anything they are arguing that they should be more Keynesian.

I'm not bothered about explaining this all in detail to people who simply don't want to hear it. The book below will help you get started if you actually do want to educate yourself.

And if your level goes about as far as watching a rap video this is about as good as your going to get, pay careful attention to what Hayek is saying about fax-demand.

Good post. But why should the bankers care about risk if they can sell the debt on to some sucker and when the banks are in trouble the taxpayer, courtesy of TPTB, bails them out?

If we bail them out again then we will go down and they will be laughing, I would have thought.

Won't somebody think of the nurses.. It's a well known fact that ALL public sector staff are life saving Florence Nightingales doing 16hr shifts by candlelight for 10 pence an hour.

I shall slightly modify a line in that otherwise perfect description:

In reality they failed to accurately assess the risks they were running- in part because the gains they made from propagating this failure the "Mortgage Backed Securities" Pyramid/Ponzi Scam & its LIAR LOANS were just too good to pass up.
