Footballers as bad as bankers
HAVING just read Mr Hargreaves' diatribe concerning HSBC (Banks make us misérable, Express & Echo, March 7) I find it necessary to contact you.
Firstly, to a certain extent, I agree with his comments concerning the amounts of profits made by that bank, and the salaries and bonuses paid to the CEO and staff, but secondly I query his knowledge of such financial matters as I suspect, bearing in mind that HSBC employs 267,000 staff and has 89 million customers, the majority of the remunerations are well justified.
If he so strongly disagrees with banks he can obviate their use and deal solely in cash; he'll soon appreciate the time saved by the services they provide.
Thirdly, I wonder how Mr Hargreaves can be so critical bearing in mind the behaviour of some of his former colleagues, ie the cheating, expectorating, narcissistic, petulant footballers?
Some of whom earn even more than his despised bankers and by far the majority of whom can only kick the ball with one foot!
Many are, in my opinion and in his words, "an absolutely intolerable disgrace; a joke".
Stick to subjects with which you are acquainted, Mr H.
