Secret Bankers' Meeting

Apparently, last Tuesday, there was a secret meeting of the CEO's and Chairmen of some the UK's leading banks.

The purpose of the meeting was to address the reputational damage from the industry's ongoing spate of scandals.

Mark Kleinman of Sky News reports that the meeting at HSBC's head office discussed Liborgate, as well as the payment protection insurance and interest rate swaps mis-selling.

It is regrettable that it has taken the banks so long to start to try to address issues that have been in the public domain, and the source of much public contempt, for such a long period of time.

The meeting also discussed the appointment of a successor (an outsider) to Marcus Agius as chairman of the British Bankers' Association (BBA).

Given the BBA's dismal reputation it would be better that they simply shut it down and set a new organisation up.
