ok so another bank lost billions. so what? well just rip us off on the mortgages when interest rates are supposed to be super low, rip us off even more when the OCR goes up! &^%$
unlike power companies who rip us off just because they can. seriously, how can us silly people allow a 5% inflation adjusted wage rise every year without fail for ceos, politicians, and then accept employers' claims there is no room for pay rise for everyone else?

someone explain?

Nothing I can see in your link has anything to do with pay rises for anyone.
