Petition for UK Public inquiry into wrongdoing and ethics of bankers
Responsible department: Her Majesty's Treasury
We the undersigned call for an independent, judicial public enquiry into fraud, wrongdoing and ethics of British banks, their management and their staff, and the role of the British Bankers Association. The terms of reference of this inquiry should also include the manipulation of interest rates on about £225 trillion of assets. The inquiry must have full powers to compel witnesses to appear on oath, and to obtain all forms of evidence.This would challenge what some commentators call the "Three Monkeys" approach to financial regulation in the UK.
