Well its that time of season again where the banks announce their profits.


So far HSBC has announced a £6.7billion half year profit, up 18% on expected profit. Not a bad result if you are a share holder.


What I will say though is that I do not support any kind of windfall tax of companies who are doing what any business would do, making a profit (and yes, I know some of that profit is from bank charges).


If windfall taxes were levied all that would do is force companies overseas and as we all know that isnt actually a good thing.

Indeed especially when figures range from between £1billion and £4billion for how much money banks make from unlawful charges!

Would be nice to see how much of that is made from charges we pay out even though they say most of it comes from oversea Investments but a would bet a few hundred million comes from UNLAWFUL charges:(
