As long as banks can make money like this who cares about inflation?

    Personally I am all in favour of large bank profits ( not that I would be in anyway influenced by thoughts
    of the future security of my index-linked pension which has risen by 45% in 13years of retirement).

    I agree. I think a windfall tax would be a bad idea.

    The banks will need to have huge reserves when the recession hits to cover their losses

    A windfall tax would increase the likelihood of them not surviving the downturn

  • Retired Banker – spare a thought for the younger generation when you look down from the lofty heights of your comfortable retirement. Massive student loans/overdrafts just to survive and currently no hope of ever affording a place to live or saving for a pension. I’m sure many are starting to think what’s the point, and if you lose the younger generation to apathy, bitterness and hatre – then who looks after the elders.

  • Uncle Chris, I am already thinking whats the point, being told I must buy a house, I must get a pension and that I also belong to the WANT, WANT, WANT culture. Well to be quite honest I have gone self employed I pay myself the minimum wage so I pay less tax and NI and I have never been better off screw the older generation they have been greedy and caused this bubble I hope they live in pension poverty when the poo hits the fan.
