Standard Willy Hutton column:
Argle bargle the banks, witter pobbely global finance, argle tax them, bargle bonus system, nurgle we must stop casino banking biggle banks must fund industry. Nitter power of finance capitalism waffle banks are bastards.
He\’s been rolling this out for fifteen years now, written at least two books making the same argument.
The structure of the banking system is what ails modern Britain.
Banks, they\’re bastards.
Today\’s Willy Hutton column?
The process has been under way for decades, but suddenly fair play and decency are in retreat before the urge to tar and feather whatever scapegoat, at whatever cost……….In its place is a new meanness, a presumption of guilt and the quest to find a single scapegoat who can take responsibility for every fault – and whom we can collectively hate.
Pot, kettle, goose gander, tu quoque, deploy your rhetorical cliche of choice at this point.
For it is really rather amusing to build you entire career on scapegoating and then decry scapegoating.
