The ordinary punter knows that the entire financial system is no more than a private fiddlers club, a very lucrative scam only open to those and such as those. The continual "shock, horror" by our political class of "Honourable Members", at each of the many revelations of blatant corruption, just re-affirms their complicity. The financial system stinks to high heavens and the political class are part and parcel of that smell. After all most of those sitting in those marble halls of the Westminster Houses of Hypocrisy and Corruption are millionaires and they them selves will have some of their ill-gotten gains swilling around in that very lucrative slush pot of the financial world, and no doubt will have "connections" to the top of the fiddlers club. They are all doing very well from the corruption and fraud. It is you and I that take the hit.

If you learn that rate-rigging and regulatory failures are systemic, but stay quiet, well, perhaps you have shown that you are genuinely reliable and deserve membership of the club.
