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.
