‘When the Sovereign Lord speaks who can avoid proclaiming his message?
AMOS Chap 3 Verse 9b.

I don’t know what bankers do now,…
Do You?
When the auditors came to wind up Leman Bros.
They found there was one black hole – a staggering loss.
The bank collapsed in the course of a single night.
In the left hand columns they found there was nothing right:
In the right hand columns they found there was nothing left.
The sun went down on an act of corporate theft-
The darkest day and night in financial history.
Prime mortgages, hedge funds and the mounting mystery
Of global stock markets shook the world.
The excesses of other banks were then unfurled.
In a flurry of profligate lending in dodgy markets,
Northern Rock ,RBS and HBOS were prime targets.
Never since Darien had Scotland known such shame.
There is only one word to describe it . . . . . .
GREED is the name of the game.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I long for the days when we knew what bankers do:
Don’t you?
