Stop cosying up to the fat cats, George!

Stop cosying up to the fat cats, George!

This week, we went to the HSBC Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster and might have got a few backs up!

With the big bank lobbying hard to avoid paying its fair share and the government fazing out a bank levy (that raises £3bn every year), we decided to expose this cosy relationship.

Dressed as banker fat cats and George Osborne, we stood outside the AGM downing champagne and having our back scratched by the Chancellor.

We need the government to take a stronger line with bankers and stop rubbing shoulders with them. Banks can afford to pay more and we need to make sure they do.
