10/03/2010 - Fat Cats get fatter

MANY ordinary British working folk still struggle to make ends meet. Whilst some survive on the minimum wage, others are taxed to the hilt.

However, making ends meet isn’t a problem if you’re a fat-cat in one of Britain’s five largest banks. For its just been announced that the HSBC, Barclays, Standard Chartered, Lloyds and the RBS are paying out £6.7bn in bonuses for last year after they ignored calls for restraint.
Nice work if you can get it!
