David Hillman, a spokesman for The Robin Hood Tax campaign, had this response to Ed Miliband's proposals to reform the banking sector:
Ed Miliband is right to call on banks to start serving our country, for too long it has been the other way around. But he is only halfway towards a comprehensive solution. Yes we should crack down on banks' predatory behaviour, but we need to do more. We need a fair deal for taxpayers from a sector whose vast profits and pay are effectively underwritten by the public purse.
