or at least bait CG into playing devils's advocate
are being told to play up the fact that all this info was found on stolen documents and to assure customers that they're working on their security measures. So basically - we're still gonna do all that stuff but we're going to try really hard not to get caught in future.
The bank are claiming they happened when compliance was much less stringent. So basically saying 'That was shitty as fuck but we are way less shitty as fuck as we were then so let's all just forget about it. Wadda ya say? *puppy dog eyes*'
Swiss and not British (or Chinese depending on how you see it).
don't really understand how the ownership works, but I'd assume it's a subsidiary based in Switzerland and subject to Swiss 'Bond villain' banking laws.
those laws were largely repealed around 2009 which I suppose is part of the defence they're using. That said I suppose it does make sense that to remain competitive in the Swiss market they'd be following FINMA guidelines.
the press getting hold of something and deciding to print it more widely than they wpould have before?
INSTITUTIONS IN RETURN FOR GAINING SOME ADVANTAGE.
WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK DO YOU THINK THEY ARE FUCKING FOR (beyond the front end banking aspects....'tellering' as it were)
WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK DO YOU THINK FUCKING CAPITALISM IS?
JESUS FUCKING CUNT!!!!
'we all know this shit is happening but we don't have anything specific to say or any proof or anything but we thought we'd report it anyway.'
The 'debacle' is that they got caught out in fairly spectacular fashion. Would you rather they didn't report that?
but whenever i try to pick apart the extant with some niave simplism (with more sincerity as to what I am after) Im called out for being a twit, by others who just fucking postulate some simplistic garbage about
"oooh whats going on with the world.....who would fucking think it" yet when someone tries to explain people respond with "get back in your eell worn box Dave spart"
Its like my mum.....voting thatcher, buying shares and being pro nationalising essential services then going...."why dont they think of their customers"
"Because you gave them appoval to change from thinking about providing services because people needed them, into being something whose prime concern is to make money........you dozy dozy woman"
and as with 3 other of my very heated responses it said 'error'
they're on to me, so perhaps I should not be sincere and frank ;D
but what makes me swear capitally is the unbearable pretence at innocent niavity......this whole society is soooo fucking 'lets keep it polite' and 'no need to get to get so excited over this old chap'
or 'yawn another dave spart"
it isnt this, its just fucking wrong man.....and YES it would help if our society could admit to it being corrupt systematically, because then it could also admit that to remove it just willy nilly might involve in removing something that has put itself in a position that society relies upon.....so that we know knee jerk reactions arnt the best way forward.....but that we have to plan how to clean up our society.......part of that is through re-education.....that it is NOT moral to want more and more and more, when you already have enough......that having way way more, is NOT justified by you somehow deserving THAT much more........by acknowledging that far far far more of the very hardest working humans are fucking woefully poor still.......by media geting some responsibility to not just sell drama for money, which mascarades as being informative (like the worst benefit scroungers)
Our society is fucking appallingly hipppocritical and petty.....yet it is made easy to be like this...because of the set up.....few people in our society are truly appalling or truly horrid to others....they are merely provided with mechanisms to not have to face reality.....
thus we can talk about really serious fucking issues without actually always really considering what the implications are for everything that would be effected by our suggetions (or the suggestions that we support)...we are removed from the consequences.
UK society is sheltered from reality.....truth may be available in dramatised/sanitised text form.....but this desentisises.
thus we are abe to ponder on things in a detached manner, whilst th\t may prevent us from getting carried away to viscerally, it also removes the damnger of the import of the consequences of our detached deliberations......also the complexity is too much for a population with an ever decrreasing attention span, thus playing further into the hands of those that provide the society with processed pre-packaged ready meals (tesco with chicken shitty stuff) and processed pre-packaged argument and opinion and remedy (Melanie Phillips with the Mail)
Aw fuck it.....yes I do occassionally go off on one....but I cant stand this fucking bullshit fauxery every now and again.
(actual or proposed/imagined) to make profit from exploiting localised (by demographic, or geographically, politically or by market) differentials.
you understand why, because of the commonly used phrase, and although , I might not offending some christians, It is wrong for me to offend all christians.
Especially as some christians (even some organised christianity) can also still tail against the evils of mammon.
So big shout out to St Johns episcopal church, for their murals showing that christianitys ideas are not foreign to mine necessarily, and sorry to GOOD christians
(Although I suspect that you may have already known....still we dont need to mention that ;)
it is to do with our society, and us joining the banksters banks.
Greenspan, thatcher, reagan, yuppie dawn, these are that, which jump started the new breed of super banksters.
but it didnt post...something about an error cos the title line was too long
I feel quite drained now......or maybe its just because its out of me now
Can't get my head around the 'Bank operated like cash machine for rich clients' headline.
Oh wait, we're British and use to bending over for spivs.
into youtube links, ranty tweets and I do like a march.
