A CONFECTION of cakes, mince pies and other seasonal treats enticed staff and customers at Lloyds in Taunton Fore Street to part with their pennies and pounds in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society.

The team raised £370 on the day, taking their year’s total up to £1,400 for the year for the cause.

The charity event is part of the bank’s broader scheme to raise money and awareness of the disease.

Manager Bryn Henson, said: “The Alzheimer’s Society is Lloyds’ charity for the year, and we’re keen to raise awareness of dementia with our customers.

“It’s also an issue the prime minister is keen to make people more aware of.”

THOUSANDS NEED & DEMAND A PAYRISE! says...

Nice cheap advert for the banksters... all paid for by Lloyds bank staff and customers!

Many people will be left wondering why the banks couldn't have got together to dig deep into their overflowing collective coffers and make a donation of their own?

After all, the banks have proved themselves extremely capable at ahem.... getting together and erm... organising themselves; when they want to, that is.

So much so, that only last week the European Commission fined a few of them for organising a cartel and collectively perpetrating a fraud on a most monumental level, where every bank customer and user (apart from the billionaires and corporates that is!) were victims of crime!

The banks were collectively fined £1.4 billion (!)which still left them billions of quid up, so all in all, it would make good business to continue with these fraudulent and criminal practices.

Two of the banks are still contesting the level of fines or penalties they will receive and two banks received complete immunity from prosecution due to the 'fact' that they were identified as 'whistleblowers'.

This decision apparently not only let the robbers off, completely scot free; but also redifined the term 'whistleblower' from meaning
" a PERSON who informs on a person or organization engaged in an illicit activity";
to apparently meaning:

'an ORGANISATION that, with others is involved in illicit activity, that, after making shed loads of cash can inform on their co-criminals in exchange for not only complete immunity from prosecution - they GET TO KEEP the PROCEEDS OF THEIR CRIME!.'

Jail the Banksters!

TAKE THE BANKS INTO PUBLIC OWNERSHIP, UNDER DEMOCRATIC PUBLIC MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL!

The billionaires, millionaires and corporates have their political parties; isn't it time the 99%n had one of their own?

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) represents a step in this direction. Visit www.tusc.org.uk for more information.
