Poll: Is the period of remorse for bankers over?

Is it time we all stopped looking for heads on a plate, and started looking for ways to move forward? Or has the period of remorse and apology not even begun?

THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE of Barclay’s Bank, Bob Diamond, has declared the period of remorse  and apology for bankers over.

He says banks now need to be left alone to make profits and allow the economy to return to growth.

Does he have a point? Should we stop looking for apologies and starting looking for ways to move on?

Have your say: is the period of remorse and apology over?

Poll Results:

No. It hasn't even begun. (318)
Yes. We need to move on. (65)
