Last month, I thought the big banks were unfit for purpose. Now I know the truth is much worse. For the last five years, the big five banks have been lying, cheating and stealing from customers.
Clearly it’s only right that Bob Diamond resigned this morning, but a couple of CEOs falling on their swords *must not distract us* from the urgent task of building a better banking system.
We can’t wait a moment longer for banks or politicians to start regulating banks - we have to start building a better system ourselves right now.
Help us seize this moment and spread the MOVE YOUR MONEY message:
1) Come to the London #ByeBarclays flashmob TOMORROW morning.
3) Get the word out on Twitter: The big banks have lied, cheated & stolen. Don't wait any longer: #MoveYourMoney today & help build a better banking system.
It’s difficult to overestimate the damage banks have done by lying about LIBOR and mis-selling interest rate swaps - families have been over-paying for mortgages, small businesses have been pushed to the wall and pensioners have had their savings siphoned off by bankers paying for ‘bottles of Bolly’.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Help us spread the move your money message - and let’s build a banking system that works for ordinary people.
