Have your say, and maybe i'll ring paxman for an interview with our conclusions. Personally banker or not, no professional should receive such outrageous amounts of money. I personally dont think although not having done it, a bankers daily job would be that difficult, its subjective of course but there are harder lesser paid jobs, so why the bonus? to keep talent in the U.K? then how come the talent contributed to such a mess in the first place? rewarding failure?
