George Galloway Wants To Jail All Bankers As Mayor Of London

Recommended Posts

Boris Johnson has been Mayor of London since 2008. Has he improved the lives of the people or improved the lives of the banking oligarchs at the expense of the people?

Galloway pledges to fight crime in the belly of the beast if elected as mayor of London, targeting the bankers, who have engaged in destructive neoliberalism encouraged tightened austerity measures, and have proven themselves to be driven by an imperialist war machine. Could the UK see a similar fate as Greece?

Funny guy Galloway. About 4/5ths of what he says is reasonable or at least makes you think about what you're being told by other people about the situation. Then he goes and spoils it all with some batshit crazy comment.

Anyway, if he's talking about jailing bankers then I'd say it should be a bit more like 'Could the UK see a similar fate as Iceland?'...

You can't blame him for the property market going crazy - what do you want him to do? Sell it for a million for the flipper to make the other 1/2 million? He bought a house for £220k in 1995 - quite expensive at that time, but not too high given his income.

If you want to criticise him go for his politics, not incidental stuff.

Thing is, 10 years ago you'd laugh in his face.

Now people are saying - Good idea.

Its not been a normal economic cycle - thigns slow down, companies go bust, economy recovers.

Whats happened is things go bang! companies go bust, banks get bailed out + nobody goes to jail, economy does not recover 8 years later.

Its why Bernie Sanders is doing so well in the US pres run-off.

10 years ago, it would be like Peter Sutcliffe standing for President.

Now, Sanders has a large support base, all across the US.

I think politicians know that there has been a fundamental shift and they are in a minefield.

:lol::lol::lol::lol:

He'[s a f**king MP, he's, along with countless other have sat and watched several governments ramp prices and ALL of them sit there and happily take their UNTAXED UNEARNED TAX PAYER SUPPORTED FREE EQUITY which keeps going up off the back of THE MPS POLICIES.

He's part of the problem, Westminster is playing us all for mugs.

FOR F**K SAKE WAKE UP

I'm with TheCount on this - they're all part of the system, the one with the countless systemic problems. The system needs a reboot/redesign and the current players need jailing. Galloway can spout some good stuff, but basically he's just a little bit more charismatic than the others. He still wants to perform in a system that violently forces people to part with their sweat equity so that they can ride around on the backs of the rest. fk 'em, fk 'em all!
