It could be worse for our bankers. Much worse.

They could face the idiocy being mouthed by German politicians:

"Oskar Lafontaine, the head of the hard-line-socialist Left party, is backing the controversial call by the party's presidential candidate Peter Sodann to jail German bankers like Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann"

....

Lafontaine said that he found it “refreshing when a former 'Tatort' (1) commissioner is so upset by seeing money gambled away that he judges it to be a criminal offence” and that he “would not only consider Mr. Ackermann to have taken part in this gambling, but also many others as well.

While Lafontaine is now in bed with the former East German communists, he was the SPD's - the party of Willy Brandt and Helmut Schmidt - candidate for the Chancellorship not so very long ago.

(1) 'Tatort' is a German police series that has been running since 1970, in which the dim bulb that is Sodann has had a role. Any readers better informed on German television who can tell me whethe this makes Sodann a Morse, a Taggart, a Frost or heaven forfend, Dixon of Dock Green, please tell me.

I suppose it depends on whether the bankers have committed criminal offences doesn't it? Or does Herr L not agree with "due process"?
