How many benefits in a Banker's Bonus?


You won't hear this often but at Zero-credit today, we are indebted to The Daily Mail! Barclays is paying out a massive £554 million in bonuses to 231 of its staff so we thought we'd divvy that up between the 450,000 or so public sector workers who are losing their jobs as we blog...

Guess what? If every one of our Jobseekers-to-be had a share in the Barclay's pot it'd be worth £1,231.11 each - or around 19 weeks on Jobseekers Allowance. Flippin' 'eck that's food for thought on Pancake Day. Time to fix us some batter, methinks ;-)
