WITH reference to Mr Swindells’ letter on bank bonuses. Does he live on another planet from the rest of us? My bonus for doing a good job is keeping it. That’s what we get paid for, is it not?

Secondly, if these bankers did such a good job, why did they lose so much money? Then to add to the insult the obscene amount of bonuses being paid. If they don’t like it go try and get another job because I dare say banking jobs are pretty thin on the ground like many other jobs.

The only way they can afford the pay, the obscene pay, is they use “our money” — pretty rich.
