Public enquiry into banking - sign the e-petition now!

Here is your chance to get the public enquiry we need on the UK's banking system. Four years since the crash and no one has been made accountable for the destruction of our economy, our lives and our children's futures. This week we have found out the scandals continue with interest rate manipulation and the mis-selling of loans to small businesses. It's time we stopped and opened a public enquiry into the banking system and its cronies. Sign today and pass on to your friends, family and colleagues...we need 100,000 people to sign! Go here now! http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/35421

Public inquiry into wrongdoing and ethics of bankers
Responsible department: Her Majesty's Treasury
We the undersigned call for an independent, judicial public enquiry into fraud, wrongdoing and ethics of British banks, their management and their staff, and the role of the British Bankers Association. The terms of reference of this inquiry should also include the manipulation of interest rates on about £225 trillion of assets. The inquiry must have full powers to compel witnesses to appear on oath, and to obtain all forms of evidence.
