BBC2: Bankers Fixing the System

"In our time political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible."

George Orwell

Libor scandal: Can we ever trust bankers again?

"In the five years since the crash that brought the world's economy to its knees, bankers have lurched from one crisis to another.

Scandal after scandal has raised questions about their pay, their values and their judgement and after the industry received billions in taxpayer bailouts, the public is in no mood to forgive and forget.

Like it or loathe it, banking is a vitally important industry to London and the whole of the UK.

But can we ever trust bankers again?"
