Bank Bashing Continues – But is it fair?

Published 25/06/2012 11:06:00

I read in an article recently that complaints from small businesses against bank loans have risen by 10%. That sounds awful. However, when you read more you find out that the actual numbers have increased from 394 to 435. I am sure that the businesses involved have a good reason to complain. But 435 out of 3.5 million businesses in the UK hardly represent a major problem.

Banks have done a lot of nonsense and indeed continue to do a lot of nonsense. However, if the general public is being fed with such “cry wolf” stories then nothing will be achieved. I think we should all focus on criticising the banks in a constructive way. What do you think?

Tell us your best “bankers joke” and we will give a prize of £100 to the best story – for further details please go to our website or Facebook site

Competition closes on the 29th June 2012.
