Bob Diamond, the former Chief Executive of Barclays Bank, who was forced to resign following the interest rates scandal, could receive a £30 million payoff.
The banker resigned following pressure from the Bank of England governor, Mervyn King. According to Lord Myners (former City minister) he could receive up to £30 million in share options, pension contributions and a full year’s salary.
Bankers need to be reminded that they are not above the law. We must not tolerate them repeatedly walking away from criminal behaviour with their millions to live a life of luxury.
Sign this petition if you agree that Bob Diamond doesn’t deserve to be paid following this scandal.
We, the undersigned, are unhappy with the potential payout that Bob Diamond may receive following his recent resignation. We believe that his involvement in the interest rate fixing scandal should negate his right to receive any financial benefits upon leaving the bank.
The general public are tired of bankers being able to behave as if they were above the law. There must be consequences for his failure as Chief Executive of your bank.
If you wish to improve your brand image, we suggest that you make an example of Bob Diamond so show that you take these matters seriously.
Thank you for your attention.
