to be fair, I stopped using HSBC when they started enabling drug dealers to move money in to the US..which I can legally say because they got caught TWICE! so screw them.
The problem is this has been coming for years. If people like Jesse Norman, Cummings et al want their neo liberal utopia; the country STILL has to pay for stuff. Tax payer money to be shovelled to arms companies, the roads need to be paid for, the proles annoyingly need water, rail, etc.
As the upper rates of tax have been cut again and again and again and again, corporate tax "avoidance" allowed by the giants like google, facebook, vodafone etc, SOMEONE has to pay for keeping the basics of the country moving..and thats the plebs.
We can't give the plebs too many rights or too much control otherwise the corporate overlords won't be able to pay themselves their multi million bonuses and buy their 3 yachts, so yuo cut services, call them too expensive, while at the same time DOUBLING national debt in 6 years as you shovel your money and tax cuts to the wealthy. You blame the poor for this even as you go off and take up your Editors job after you've screwed the country.
Now you have a bunch of loons who don't even pretend to care while they shovel private contracts to companies that don't even pretend to have the expertise. Ferry firms wiht no ferries, PPE firms from pest control companies with £5 in the bank, £5 billions for COVID testing to firms that don't have to share their results with the NHS (who are also banned frmo bidding) and you see a massive shift of money upwards and a shift of expertise to countries where there are so many people that even security guards need to have MBA's.
