The Current Account: Banks Battle Rising Anger Over Bumper Bonuses and PayIBTimes UK

This week has been all about anger growing over banks rewarding their top staff and leaders millions and billions in bonuses and pay, despite them still behaving badly.

Barclays faces a strong shareholder backlash after the group boosted bonuses, despite a drop in profits and a spate of mis-selling scandals which have already cost the bank billions of pounds in compensation payouts.

Meanwhile, Lloyds revealed it will cap 35,000 staff pensions despite paying its chief executive £8m in salary and bonuses.
