[Penalty Charges] Calls to Stop Conducting Illegal Activities are Unfair

Posted by Lex Fear on March 31, 2007

Hit with millions of claims, customer complaints, an online petition and impending OFT investigation- banks are now crying “foul play” and threatening to end free banking.

“Banks were accused of blackmail yesterday for threatening to end free banking if they were forced to reduce overdraft charges and other penalty fees.

The banks, which charge up to £39 for bounced cheques and unauthorised overdrafts, had been expected to be told to reduce the charges to around £12.” – Telegraph

Let’s forget the fact they are already operating illegally by imposing fines greater than £12- therefore sounding like a burglar who complains he’s been asked to reduce his amount of breaking and entering.

These are the companies who this year posted pre-tax profits of:

£11.5bn: HSBC
£.7.14bn: Barclays
£5.7bn: HBOS
£559.2ml: Nationwide
£585ml: Alliance & Leicester

These are the companies who insist on charging Average Joe up to £39 for even dipping into the red:

Penalised for just over £27
Penalised for delay in clearing customers cheques – wait a minute, who delays the cheques in the first place?
Penalised for unforseen circumstances

Well, perhaps if you make a mistake, even if it is accidental, unforseen or just business, you deserve to be charged right?

So I look forward to seeing what kind of charges are levied on these errors:

Oops! Delay in receiving monthly salary
Oops! Sent details to wrong address

Quid es equitas?

[‘Accidents’ Happen] Propaganda Still A Threat To The UK

Posted by Lex Fear on December 23, 2006

“I thought it was only the mafia that referred to killing people as “accidents”…”

Sorry, but I just couldn’t let this one go…

Met Chief’s Terror Plot Warning

I really am fed up with the kind bull that Sir Ian Blair spews. The latest article by the BBC says it all:

“Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair claims the UK is facing an unparalleled and growing threat of a terrorist attack.

However, he said there was “no specific intelligence” about an imminent attack but the threat was “ever present”.” – BBC News (cont.)

Is it just me that questions the logic of that statement? There is “no specific intelligence” but the threat is “ever present”. Does this sound a little Orwellian to you? It should. Either there must be specific intelligence, or there is no threat, you can’t just say that it’s ever present. It’s like saying there is a threat of a meteor crashing into earth- there are small bits of meteors crashing all the time. As for a large one, yes it could happen, but we don’t go around warning each other everyday or living under the cloud of the threat.

“Sir Ian also said he was “confident” of being cleared of misconduct over the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes.

And he defended an anti-terror raid in Forest Gate, claiming the shooting of a man during the raid was an accident.” (cont.)

I thought it was only the mafia that referred to killing people as “accidents”. As far as accidents go, I hope I don’t end up a police “accident” as I’m running for the tube one day (yet another reason not to use the tube).

I don’t know about you but I am just not comfortable with that term “accident”. It makes it sound like something less significant. Let’s not forget, a man lost his life here, an innocent man who happened to be of the wrong skin tone.

I’m sure if Mr De Menzes by some miracle had survived 6 shots fired into his forehead at point blank range, he would have a different take on the incident.

The commissioner criticised the length of the inquiry, adding: “It’s difficult to understand how an organisation can take 13 months to investigate what I did or did not say on one particular day.”

I must congratulate the commissioner on a clever and great example of deflecting responsibility. Why else would an organisation take 13 months to investigate what you said? There’s a PR tactic that you may have heard of, it’s call disinformation. The only reason there could be any difficulty in establishing facts is differing accounts. The delay, commissioner, is with you and the Met.
