Oh dear! Just when we all thought there was a chink of hope that the Banks were at last going to get it in the neck for a change - they get off scott-free! They really do seem to be untouchable.
Free banking (ie. no charges for current accounts) is an 'illusion' the banks like us to believe, but of course they have the use of our money - so they are benefiting hugely from their account holders who keep in the black. They aren't just being kind, and 'not charging' us anything for their services - indeed they are using our money all the time to their own ends!
At this rate people are going to end up putting their money under the mattress on a point of principle!
My name here is LoudHayley, but I'm not particularly loud, nor am I really called Hayley.
I am interested in people and society, and am FOR more humanity and harmony, and AGAINST power-relationships, toxic empires, collusion, and greed.
Kindness costs nothing, good personal communication is, in my view, everything. Fairness and justice - a hope for all.
Often we cannot change a situation, but we can always adapt our own attitude.
I currently work in a Probation Office; I have previously set up and run my own web-based business, worked from home; and taken a few years out to be a full time (pre-school) parent - that was some years back!
I was born 'an orphan' (my father was killed in a military accident prior to my birth) - Generally, I am sure trauma in the very early years (pre-conscious) has an impact on how people deal with their later life - not always adversely, or permanently. I believe people can change, but it is almost certainly better for them if there is no need for them to do so ...
