The attack on banker bonuses would hurt ordinary workers, UK Independence Party spokesman Godfrey Bloom said today in response to the European Union's move to cap bankers' bonuses.
Mr Godfrey said: "This move is the European Parliament getting the boot into bankers for a bit of political pleasure, but it is totally misguided.
"It may give the EU a dirty satisfaction to punish financial people it hates, but this agreement just hurts ordinary workers and the economy in general."
