"Someone out there has made a fortune from all this. When the dust settles, I JUST HOPE THEY’RE GOING TO BE HELD TO ACCOUNT FOR WHAT THEY’VE DONE TO US."THEY will not be held to account. THEY now have their men in place, owning and governing a banking house where 'well over half the households in Britain would have a relationship.' The international financiers, so beloved of Blair and Brown, engineeered this situation. HBOS was, very much, a going concern. It wasn't badly managed or led. The same kind of creatures that created Sub Prime and the Credit Crunch decided they were going to force HBOS to the wall and they did.
Another HBOS employee said:
"It used to be the case that when you went to work for the Halifax you had a job for life. Those days are gone now."Those days are gone because of Margaret Thatcher’s love of Fat Cat and her lack of concern for social harmony and the British way. ('There's no such thing as society!')
They are gone because Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and the New Labour project pointedly refused to punish the politicans who had created a world in which such uncaring money-grubbers could wreak havoc and the money-grubbers themselves. In fact, not only did they not punish them, they, too, treated them with such favour that, 11 years into the Time of Tony, an insanely anti-societal banking fraternity can create Sub Prime, the Credit Crunch and a global meltdown, profit wildly from the misery of everyone else and expect to suffer no penalty at all for their brute misdeeds.
Elsewhere at The Times this was said:
"IT IS FEARED THAT UP TO 40,000 STAFF COULD BE AXED. Eric Daniels, Lloyds TSB's chief executive, admitted there would be job losses…
Mr Daniels, who will become chief executive of the combined group, signalled a wave of cost-cutting and branch closures at both banks after stating the deal would save at least £1 billion in annual costs by 2011.
Sir Victor Blank, the Lloyds TSB chairman WHOSE FRIENDSHIP WITH PRIME MINISTER GORDON BROWN HELPED ENGINEER THE MERGER, BECOMES CHAIRMAN OF THE ENLARGED BANK."Blank was the Director of The Royal Bank of Scotland, which merged with The Halifax to form HBOS, from 1985 to 1993. The Times continues:
"John Hutton, Secretary of State for Business, confirmed that the Government would be intervening to approve the takeover in the national interest. IN OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES, A COMBINATION OF TWO OF BRITAIN'S BIGGEST BANKS WOULD HAVE BEEN THROWN OUT ON COMPETITION GROUNDS…The top guns at Lloyds TSB are the aforementioned Sir Victor Blank, 'whose friendship with Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, helped engineer the merger' and Eric Daniels.
ALISTAIR DARLING, THE CHANCELLOR, CONCEDED THIS MORNING THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAD PLAYED A ROLE IN THE DEAL…
'This is a landmark day for the British financial services industry. If you think about the company, IT REALLY PUTS US ON THE GLOBAL SCALE,' Mr Daniels said…
The merger of HBOS and Lloyds TSB would change the face of personal banking in Britain, creating a gorilla among pygmies and eventually altering the look of the high street. Well over half the households in Britain would have a relationship with the new superbank, which would become the biggest player in the personal savings and mortgage sectors.
Hundreds of branches look certain to be closed, especially on the many high streets where the two organisations have competing branches. One estimate was that AS MANY AS 1,000 OF THE COMBINED BRANCH NETWORK OF 3,000 COULD EVENTUALLY BE SHUT...
HBOS employs 72,000 people while Lloyds has 70,000, in both cases almost entirely in Britain. In mergers of such similarly positioned organisations, as many as ONE THIRD OF THE COMBINED WORKFORCE COULD LOSE THEIR JOBS...
One banker familiar with mergers in the sector said that the potential for job cuts was considerable...
'There’s massive overlap between Lloyds and HBOS,' he said. 'It’s going to be unbelievably messy'."
Daniels is an American of German/Chinese heritage. Blank’s grandparents were Ukrainian Jews.
This is the unacceptible face of Globalisation and The New World Order, folks. Look at that face. Is this really what you want? Do you want your lives run by an unanswerable, global super-elite who couldn't give a damn for you or yours? Well then, ask yourselves this: what's the opposite of Globalism? What does the Global super-elite most fear?
Answer: Nationalism. Which is why the globalist media has demonised the British Nationalist for almost 80 years now.
The Mirror Group, which has around 160 local and national newspapers in its portfolio, includes: The Daily Mirror; The Sunday Mirror; The Sunday Mail; The People; The Daily Record; (Scotland's biggest selling daily) The Birmingham Post; The Birmingham Mail; The Sunday Mercury; The Liverpool Daily Post: the Liverpool Echo; The Racing Post; The South London Press and The Western Mail. (Wales' biggest selling daily)
The Mirror Group used to own a 43% share of The Independent as well.
Sir Victor Blank, who is now the Chairman of a banking house where 'well over half the households in Britain would have a relationship,' was until 2006, the Chairman of Trinity Mirror plc., the UK's biggest newspaper group, which owned Mirror Group Newspapers. So, if you ever want to know why those who care most about the British people have never been given a fair crack of the whip by the the press, just ask Gordon Brown's friend, the Chairman of the biggest bank in the UK, Victor Blank.
In 1999, he was ennobled by Tony Blair.
On 9 March 2009, Leo McKinstry said this in The Daily Express:
"Prime Minister Brown always tries to pin all the blame on global problems or sub-prime lending in America. But the fact is that HE IS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CURRENT MESS. IT WAS HE WHO PUSHED FOR THE DISASTROUS SHOTGUN MARRIAGE BETWEEN LLOYDS TSB AND HBOS, PROMISING LLOYDS BOSS SIR VICTOR BLANK THAT HE WOULD WAIVE THE RULES ABOUT COMPETITION TO SMOOTH THE MERGER.Lloyds' problems were, of course, down to Sir Victor himself. He should have told Brown to f*** off and he didn't.
IT WAS BROWN WHO RUINED THE PUBLIC FINANCES, PUSHED FOR MORE GLOBALISATION, PROMOTED THE CREDIT BUBBLE, WRECKED THE PRIVATE PENSIONS SYSTEM AND SOLD OFF OUR GOLD RESERVES."
