THE bankers who were given a shedload of money in 2008 have been told that now might be a good time to give it back.
With the economy in crisis, many Britons feel that banks who received massive bailouts might like to chip in now with some of their hundreds of billions of pounds.
Investment banker Martin Bishop said: “No.
“It’s our money now. Our understanding was that the cash was stop the banking system collapsing. And to have some spends for dodgy financial products that caused the problem in the first place.
“Money won’t help against coronavirus. What’s the point in giving the nation millions when people can easily make a mask out of some string and an old sock?”
Fellow banker Eleanor Shaw said: “Banks are the most important part of the economy, even if we have a habit of lending each other too much money and trashing said economy.
“I’ve seen what people do in lockdown. How do we know Britain wouldn’t spend the £500 billion on barbecues and cans of lager?”
