Short and to the point: Withdraw Barclays’ Banking Licence!
Responsible department: Her Majesty’s Treasury
Within a capitalist economy banks perform a vital function in facilitating the production and exchange of goods and services. In return for fulfilling this role responsibly they are allowed to hold a banking licences, which brings them great benefits in terms of the ability to create money through making loans. The systematic manipulation of the LIBOR value to serve its business interests makes clear that Barclays is not a fit company to hold a banking licence. We call upon the government to withdraw Barclays banking licence.
A television crew from Sky News visited Molly Scott Cato at home to interview her about the manipulation of inter-bank lending rates by Barclays and the resignation of its chief executive Bob Diamond. This appeared on appeared on Sky news earlier this month.

Addressed at HM Treasury, this petition says:
We the undersigned call for an independent, judicial public enquiry into fraud, wrongdoing and ethics of British banks, their management and their staff, and the role of the British Bankers Association. The terms of reference of this inquiry should also include the manipulation of interest rates on about £225 trillion of assets. The inquiry must have full powers to compel witnesses to appear on oath, and to obtain all forms of evidence.
If it gets 100,000 signatures, it will lead to a debate in Parliament. It was initiated by Ann Pettifor who is very well versed in the subject. More

“We” is editorial
We will copy this letter to Ian Taylor-Ramsden of the Financial Ombudsman Service since it helps to establish that he is not impartial. We believe that your bank is rewarding him for his lack of impartiality. Your bank has been corrupt since it was established in South Africa when it supported Apartheid. You may recall that Peter Hain, MP, put his life at risk in opposing your bank and Apartheid.

There are repossessions of criminals and there are criminal repossessions.
What they have in common are banks. In this case Barclay’s.
