    Barclays Bankers On Libor Scandal: We Look Like 'Crooks And Fools'

    You have it half right...you dont look like crooks...YOU ARE CROOKS...but were the fools for always allowing you to get away with it.



    Barclays bankers are furious about their scandal too.
    "It made us look like crooks and fools," a senior Barclays executive told CNBC's NetNet blog on Tuesday, referring to the Barclays Libor-rigging scandal. "It was ridiculous that he thought he could stay on after the Libor scandal."

    It won't end up being just Barclays. When I first heard about this, Barclays wasn't mentioned. I wrote my Senator about it back in March.

    Nope it wont be just Barclays.

    But there is a reason that Barclays was chosen to be outed first..

    1. Bob Diamond.. arrogant prick.. and an American running a British institution.. and getting huge bonuses.
    2. Barclays had an image of perfection.. barely hit by the economic crisis.. which is a false image. They are for example, heavily exposed to Spain.. and with this cheating, that image has been shattered.

    Barclays was the last of the big banks to be hit by some sort of scandal or down turn..... can only say.. welcome to the club!
