BANKERS have attacked plans to send them to jail for being ‘reckless’, insisting that could mean anything.
As the Banking Standards Commission called for harsher penalties for financial executives, the bankers insisted recklessness was ‘entirely subjective’.
Martin Bishop, from Donelly-McPartlin, said: “I cannot imagine the circumstances under which we would behave recklessly. Do you mean while we’re driving? Or perhaps you mean skiing without a helmet?
“Are you suggesting we have been reckless in the past? I’m afraid you’re going to have to be more specific.”
