ABSTRACT
COULD anyone have been more vociferous than Ed Balls in denouncing the reckless bankers, whose greed and incompetence brought Britain's financial system to the brink of ruin? Strange then, that the Shadow Chancellor has been so reticent about the latest banking fiasco, in which an institution that sold itself to public investors as an 'ethical' bank - more cautious and responsible with other people's money than conventional high street lenders - is revealed to be an utter sham.
