From the Parable of the talents:

For to everyone who has will be given, and he will have abundance, but from him who doesn’t have, even that which he has will be taken away.


So now THAT explains the behaviour of bankers……..

    Magpie, to have no money is expensive: You will be fined and penalised as to your short comings at every corner. In olden days we had the debtors’ prison; now we are allowed to keep digging ourselves into deep holes. If you lose your nerve, the hole becoming your ‘grave’. Never understood why men (and it’s predominately men) kill themselves when funds run short. Maybe it’s a pride thing.

    As to bankers: May I pick you up on your recently stating that you are averse to ‘generalisations’. Stands to reason, don’t you agree, that somewhere out there in the “City” there will be a banker with morals, principles and integrity. There are. I know this for a fact.

    Ever the optimist, yours,
