In todays climate seeing as the banks caused the mess should this be happening.

I may be in the minority but yes if thats what was agreed(i would be upset if someone took my bonus off me and its only 1k before tax), i'm with barclays and although the sum is rediculous barclays didn't borrow any money.They should of nationalised the banks they had to help and then once on a stable footing sold them off.It wont matter soon anyway, they will all relocate their head offices abroad like HSBC are on about doing then London will be screwed.

Doesn't matter in the slightest. They weren't bailed out by the government/tax payers so they shouldn't have to answer to anybody.

They manage to run a profitable business without the need of being rescued so it's up to them what they do.

I heard earlier that he was either refusing or giving away 1/4 of that bonus because of the current feelings people have towards bankers.

Yup thats right mate. On top of that he gave up 1/3 of this bonus. He didn't have to, he just made a gesture.

Fair play to him
