    Re the BBC feature on Trust ‘critical’ to banking system – perhaps the interviewee and director general of the CBI, Richard Lambert should have a word with John Varley head of Barclays. A couple of weeks ago the FT main page comment column, Varley managed to mention ‘trust’ in the context of bankers no less than half a dozen time in the space of circa 800 words. The words ‘bonus’ or ‘bonuses’ appeared not once. The general refrain of the article was that jibes about casino banks were somehow unfair. Given that the financial sector’s continuing (courtesy of the taxpayers’ generosity bonus culture is perhaps the major driver in popular discontent with the sector, is there not some lack of ‘seeing the wood for the trees’ in what Mr Varley has to say?
