British Bankers Mock People Harmed by Credit Crunch

It's not enough that they caused the crisis, now British bankers are mocking their victims.

In an article in the Sunday issue of the London Express, a group of idiot bankers calling themselves the City Boyz (note the 'Z,' to make them more cool and hip) released a video on YouTube laughing about the misery the banks have caused their fellow Britons.

The chorus includes the lovely line, "Sorry we f---ed up your Christmas, but really we don’t give a s---.”

City Boyz spokesman Dave -- probably the one most able to form complete sentences -- told the Express, "We were down O'Neills, pissed (drunk) as usual and pissed off that we were getting the blame for the crunch all the bloody time. Then we all thought you know what, we don’t really give a s--t. We’ve all done OK, sod ’em."

So, not knowing anything else about British investment bankers, I have learned the following:

  1. They're often drunk, as shown by the "as usual" statement.
  2. They made plenty of money, but don't accept any blame for the British financial collapse.
  3. They don't care about the plight of others, but rather choose to mock the people they've harmed.
  4. They have learned nothing from the French Revolution.

The paper identifies the morons as Ciarran “The Brawler”, Dave, Jeremy and Marcus. The gutless cowards did not want to reveal their employers, although they have admitted they are City bankers and stock brokers. One claims to work for Lehman brothers, the collapsed investment banker.

If there is any justice in England, their employers will figure out who the asshats in the video are, fire them, and rescind their salaries and bonuses. Then, when they're on the dole (in the unemployment line), someone will come out with their own video, mocking the plight of insensitive louts who finally get what they deserve.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

  1. Thanks for this. I was looking for a good British tale, having tired of the whole "Christmas Carol" thing.
