Banks have been caught laundering money, and rigging Libor and energy markets. These are the acts of criminals, not just a matter of "mis-selling" to us consumers. So will our leaders now decide it's time to regulate them properly? So far they've been fined a fraction of the money they've made. Nobody important has been jailed.

Banks tell us: we pay lots in taxes; we create jobs; we'll leave for Hong Kong if you regulate us; blah blah blah.

You can read our point-by-point demolition of these false arguments in our earlier post: What does banking contribute to UK Plc? 7 myths exposed, and why we must rein them in
