People across the country were outraged when Mr Osborne announced a paltry £2.5bn levy on the banks.
The banks led us into the recession in the first place through their greed and irresponsibility. Then the they had to be bailed out with billions of pounds of public money.
People, myself included, rightly feel that the banks should be made to pay for the crisis they have caused that is causing so hardship across the country. And is set to make much, much more under the ConDem cuts.
Now it seems that Mr Osborne isn't finished. Having been made aware that the levy may reach an unexpected £3.9bn, he is set to cut it. To ensure that his £2.5bn target isn't exceeded.
Because we couldn't have that now could we?
It looks like the banks really are the ones who run the country doesn't it.
