Le Minihic Sur Rance, Brittany
I have just returned from a lovely holiday in a beautiful part of Brittany (on the genealogy trail) and I have to say that part of me is still there. What a civilised country France is; they definitely have life sussed; would that the UK was the same.
I returned to even more bad news on the banking front and to learn that the head of my own bank, Barclays, is accused of being one of the worst fraudsters. If it is proven that the banks have been manipulating the interest rates and diddling people out of lots of money shouldn't that mean that everyone affected by this manipulation should be reimbursed or compensated? And surely criminals who commit fraud should be behind bars? Why on earth should there even be a debate about an enquiry for God's sake? I have been fuming at the seriousness of the latest banking criminality which is what it is. And another thing - Barclays have been fined nearly £300 million by the Financial Services Authority - so who gets that money, in whose pockets does that money land in the end?
To brighten my mood I was looking on the Internet for this pic which a friend had posted on his Facebook page (and I loved it)
I stumbled on this pic too which I also loved and which I should perhaps try to concentrate on but it is hard sometimes.
Perhaps if it would stop raining we would all feel a little happier?
How is your Sunday?
Bye for now,
Go mbeannai Dia duit,
