So Slasher Osborne is about to put the bite on the fatcat banks, by increasing the bank levy. You might think that this dastardly deed would be reflected in the share prices of the banks. Not a bit of it. Since the opening at 8 am this morning up to midday, here is how their shares have been affected:

Well what did you expect? Slasher has only increased the levy by £800 million. The banking plutocrats won't even notice the loss against their profits of £ billions.
Btw, the public sector deficit is about £150 billion.
