Why are bankers still unpunished?

IN reply to Dorothy Fudge, it has to be said that this current Government has had nearly five years to sort out the economy and the social problems we’ve seen develop.

They have not. All they seem capable of is blaming the last Government. The time for excuses passes around five or six months into the job; we are now nearly into another general election.

I also would rather people understood that the banks had a massive impact, not just Labour.

We still have bankers unpunished for their crimes, some have even been awarded bonuses.

Food banks are a recent issue.

They have happened due to Direct Living Allowance and other welfare having been scrapped.

Labour had no play in this at all.

People need employment before they can leave welfare and having looked at the job market recently myself, there is little on option for full-time, regular work.

Lastly, if money is such an issue for Government then why have they ignored the £30 billion HMRC have failed to take in tax from the multinationals?

Of course this Tory led government wont hit the bankers as it would be "biting the hand that feeds them".
.
The Tories are the mates of the City money people and would continue to lay the blame at the door of a previous government.
.
It is the task of the Tories to protect the top 10% of our country ....... at the cost of the middle and lower classes ........ Which is why they will not get anywhere near an overall majority at the next general election .......
.
They have attempted to destroy and divide our great country ....... Fortunately the vast majority of the electorate have recognised this and only the Lemmings remain .......
