The last bonus I got was a 15 pound marks and Spencers gift voucher. What did I do to deserve this, I spent the whole year working the weekends. My wife worked out that from the bonus I worked every Saturday and Sunday, neglected my family on the premise of making money. That means I got just under 2p an hours.
I would have got more working in the poorest country in the world.
Now if I was a banker (or merchant banker) I would have done the following.
1. Never worked a weekend
2. Got a basic wage that would fee a small African village
3. Bankrupt the planet
So I see on the news that because they made 1.5 billion dollars they would be getting massive bonuses.
Now last year they were on their knees begging for our money to help them out, now if you business failed would the Government help you, HELL NO.
And what are the governments doing, talking shit as per usual, at least the French government has some balls and is capping their bankers, now it is time for the rest to follow.

How much is enough
I was listening to a banker (i prefer the cockney version) who was justifying giving them selves a bonus. I have a degree in engineering and worked for one of the biggest companies in Europe, I worked on multi million pound projects.
