– David Hillman, Robin Hood Tax campaign
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.
