Are all banks the devils spawn who promote poverty and the destruction of the planet we all must live on for the benefit of a select few? They pretend to be our friend with advertizing showing people with smiling faces but are they not just a bunch of thieving, immoral, parasitic bastards feeding off the sweat of ordinary good hardworking folk.? Alan, Codlepool.
I absolutely cannot concur. Bankers are the brilliant trustful stewards of our financial institution and undoubtedly the pillars of civilization. Without them everyone would suffer. There would be poverty, war, global famine, plus people would surely smell horrid too. Indeed, I recall being lucky enough to know several chaps who came from a long line of banking families during my time at Sockcucker Finishing School for Boys. Splendid fellows they were and I still recall with great affection the long hours we would play hide the sausage together in the dormitories, taking it in turns to be the shirt lifter or the pillow biter. Looking back I do not recall if it was ever their turn to be the pillow biter but nevertheless, it was a privilege to simply be in their acquaintance. Indeed, I would quite regularly lend these fellows money, which they would duly return less an administration fee. However, I would only have squandered this money on food or heating. So, the big picture was they only had my best interests at heart, as they would regularity point out. It is not an easy job evicting families from their homes onto the streets or recovering money from war torn starving nations, lent to them at extortionate rates of interest. However, a debt is a debt and must be repaid at any cost to avoid world anarchy. You should write a letter to your bank at once, thanking them for allowing you to be their customer and educating you in the frugal ways of financial responsibility.
