Question: "Let them eat cake" - should bankers be pigging out at a cost of £500,000?
Is this the equivalent of Marie Antoinette saying, "Let them eat cake" as the peasants gathered round the Bastille? Should the fat cats face similar consequences? (I'm not saying we should guillotine them by the way, just guillotine their obscene wealth!)
Answer: This is very, very wrong. It would serve them all right if we all withdrew all our savings forthwith.
This is total greed and arrogance and the kind of behaviour that got us into this mess to begin with.
