  1. While banks have lost money in loans to corporates, it's taxpayer money being used to 'capitalize' banks... and not a single word is being uttered in parliament, which is called custodian of people's money...again banks will lend to fatty & again there wil be need for more capitalization...and so this loot will go on.
