£ 1:2 Billion
£ 1.2 Billion or if you prefer $1.9 Billion
is a lot of money in any bodies pocket?
The British Bank HSBC is paying this amount to the Federal Government as a settlement!
to cover its spoor of it's crooked dealings and money laundering, and in an effort to stop the investigation.
After the cheque is cleared I'm sure both sides will retire to a plush restaurant and have a wee toast to celebrate dodging the bullet.
Oh am I being unkind?
They should be named and shamed and then Jailed.
But! They will all get their bonuses, and continue, with no feeling's of guilt.
Don't that make you bite your lip?
don't you just wonder how much they got away with?
Just think how that much money would have helped our economy.
Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. (Lord Acton)
