Banking culture inquiry shelved by regulator FCA

Oh, is that right – there “may have been a political motive”?

The only way the halting of this inquiry can be justified is if the FCA has decided to drop the preamble and go straight for the prosecutions.

Does anybody here think that’s what’s going to happen?


It’s just another allegedly-“independent” organisation proving itself to be nothing of the kind.

The City regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), has shelved plans for an inquiry into the culture, pay and behaviour of staff in banking.

The FCA had planned to see whether pay, promotion and other incentives contributed to misconduct seen in previous years.

The review was meant to be a major piece of work by the watchdog.

Mark Garnier MP, a Conservative member of the Treasury Select Committee said he was “disappointed” by the decision.

He said there may have been a political motive.

There is no doubt of the result if the plebiscite is honest. Then there were two (iceland and Switzerland)…..

    Does anyone really believe that this decision was any more than a dictat from Gideon? Yet another Authority that we the public have no trust in at all. One more step towards a dictatorship.
