    Wink Brit Bankers threaten to quit UK if bonuses capped; world laughs


    Knock yourselves out and do us a favor. Where oh where will they go? They still are convinced of their own "talent" which means so little to the rest of the world. Sure the system they created is little more than burning embers from the once great fires of prosperity but it was all a fraud. Those profits that they were paid on weren't profits, but paper shells. They really need to get over themselves and their odd sense of entitlement. Let them find somewhere else to destroy and if that mysterious country/city wants to pay them, great.


    Half of British bankers would consider leaving the country if a cap were put on their cash bonuses, a survey showed on Friday.

    The poll by jobs website eFinancialCareers.com found that 49 percent of British-based bankers would consider voting with their feet such a limit to their income were introduced. That figure rose to 71 percent among financiers with six to ten years experience.

    "Were bonuses to be capped unilaterally in the UK, the country would run the risk of an exodus of top financial talent," said John Benson, chief executive of eFinancialCareers.


    However, the number of alternative locations in which to work has shrunk dramatically as the credit crisis has hit hiring and pay around the world.



    Ya don't say? You mean the economic crisis is global? And everyone now knows that they are fraudsters? Golly, I had no idea. Now that Europe is working together on this subject and the US is (finally) coming around, that leaves the Middle East, Singapore, Hong Kong or possibly China as up and coming locations. Too bad they are dropping like rocks too, thanks to the gamblers who think they are deserving.

    Bye! So long! See ya! Fare-thee-well! There are quite probably other people out there who have the skills to do the job who WILL accept the bonus caps and be damn grateful for the job/promotion to the position.

    How dare they question the government when receiving taxpayer funded corporate welfare because of their own vast incompetence?

    I actually don't know where they find the gall.

    Before you know it the Brit doctors will decide they want to make all decisions about patients health care instead of the governments SOCIAL health care professionals. Who the hell do they think they are?

    That comparison is nonsensical. One is a ministry funded by tax dollars and run by government officials who have no actual input on day to day patient care.

    The other is an private industry run for profit by supposed professionals who have fucked up so badly that said industry needs taxpayer funding to continue to function.

    If you can't see the vast difference, well that's just sad.
