Osborne Takes Legal Action Over Eu Banker Bonus Cap

Recommended Posts

http://news.sky.com/story/1146336/osborne-takes-legal-action-over-eu-bonus-cap

"Osborne Takes Legal Action Over EU Bonus Cap

The Treasury has lodged a legal complaint over the European Union's proposed cap on bank bonuses, Sky News has learnt."

The chancellor will be consigned to the history books soon, I feel.

How not to win an election...this is it.

I'd hope people will be up in arms about this.

You couldn't make this up. They must want their share of the tax payer back door bailout know as FLS/HTB.

We shouldn't have Booed him at the Olympics. He knows his banker chums will look after him if he will look after them.

His Bullingdon Club chums must've been upping the pressure.

Could this be the straw that breaks the tories back ?

This bloke is using tax payers money to underpin a banking system then using tax payers money to try and force the EU to allow them to take a bigger cut of it !!!!

This madness has got to stop.

Do I sound outraged ? I am !!!!

He won't say Boo to the EU on unlimited mass immigration, loss of sovereignty etc....

... but my god!

.... a banker can't pay himself millions using taxpayer money, or printed money (devaluing our money) and the Conservatives won't stand for it.

This government is over. Scum.

Not certain Ed is giving him a run for his money with telling everyone he's going to freeze the price of energy. That should mean energy companies putting up bills a little higher up until the next election to cover the freeze.

You'd hope that was the end of him, but that's not how the Tories work.

Grassroots Tory's SHOULD be up in arms about this. It makes their party that have become awful look, well awful.... as clear as day Osborne and his ilk are serving their masters here not the people.

They won't be though.

They'll find some mad contrived way to defend this. I predict a dig at Bliar/Brown (selling off all the gold), something about the dead not being buried in the 70s, and a pun involving the fact Ed Milliband's first name rhymes with a "commie" primary colour.

Why I left. Grassroots support blindly following anything a particular party does even when it is very obviously wrong just because "at least they're not the other lot" is how the Tory party and the Labour party in this country have ended up very very broken.

It's the LIB-DEMS that need to be up in arms about this...they need to dissolve their coalition today and have a vote of no confidence.

It's both.

This isn't what the majority of grassroots Tories think they're voting for (trust me).

But yeah, agreed about the Lib Dems. They should have walked bloody ages ago.

Yip, there's your choice a Balls or Osborne.

That's why I will be voting UKIP.

That's why I will be actively campaigning for everyone else to vote UKIP.

VOTE UKIP.

Have UKIP explained to all the rentier farmers and landowners how we are going to pay their subsidies out of the EU? After all that is the only reason I can see for being in it. A bigger pool of mugs to pay for their spare fields and Range Rover Sports/

They might save their political skins if they remove their support now.

This whole thing is obscene.

Has anyone started an anti-banker party yet....after this there must be scope for one.

It's sort of why I'm hoping Ed is as red as he's trying to make out. I don't think he is, but the bankers would absolutely sh1t themselves if he got elected off the back of socialist vote that's actually, well, socialist.

I'm not sure what the Labour party would make of it either. Could potentially split them in two long-term (the old Labour bods that are a dying breed, and the Nu Thatcher-lite lot that are probably a bit confused as to where they stand right now).

I can certainly see some Labour MPs walking across the commons to join the Tories if he gets in (has that ever happened before)?

VOTE UKIP.

But their policies mostly suck. As a protest vote, they've probably got the most legs, but the main three parties insist on taking the protest as a real vote, and start scrabbling around to see which UKIP policies they can steal. On balance, and it pains me because I have some serious problems with them, I'll vote Green. If the big three are going to assume my vote goes to the party whose policies I like the most, then I'd rather they stole from the Greens than UKIP.

I don't disagree.

The one thing about UKIP though is....THEY ARE NOT LABOUR/LIB DEM or TORIES.

It's time to get out of the UK while the getting is good.

How would it be funded?

I've considered how someone with intelligence, motivation and integrity could try and change the UK if they won, say, 180m euros in a lottery, one of the really big Euromillions wins.

Buy a media outlet, start a party, etc etc.

You know what? It wouldn't be easy - you'd have 180m, but against you would be a whole range of people used to lies and manipulation, with all the contacts, and many billions at their disposal....

Someone with the level of wealth Bill Gates has could do it though, if he wasn't killed.

You must understand that it was poor people that did it. They over-consumed bedrooms, and decided en mass to give their jobs to foreign people. These are unforgivable crimes that deserve harsh punishment.

On the other hand the banks were forced, positively forced, not to check mortgage applications for false statements or whether the loans could be repaid, by poor families bringing their children along whom made puppy dog eyes at the bankers. Honestly, how can any banker resist such evil manipulative behaviour?

So you see everything is the fault of poor people. Bankers are blameless. Please move on...........nothing to see.......

Use it as a cover letter for a job at Tory HQ.

I reckon you'd nail it.

It's just worked for Germany and the USA (in terms of increasing growth by spending).

Be interesting when (if) those two finally go pop.
