The banks are seeking to swallow the bailout for the second time
The banks are seeking to swallow the bailout for the second time - to make the bailout intended for real businesses and the people 'disappear'. Just as they did last time. Just before they refused to do their job: Lending to real businesses. Which they have never done since.
Leaving us with a decade of austerity!
I wrote the article on which this cartoon will be based at the point, now, when decisions are being made by government - who seem to want to do the right thing.
The banks are lobbying hard to push the devil into the detail so they get their hands on our bailout.

Please donate - at least £1 - to pay the illustrator his hire, and to express your support for the bailout this time coming not to the banks but to real people, real businesses and the real economy!
We really want to go beyond the target to £1500 or beyond so that we can also make a viral video and promote it, as well as more podcasts and articles.
I'm a well known writer, campaigner for the public good, innovator & technologist - who is known for fearlessly speaking the truth to banks, governments and regulators, when necessary.

Rewards on offer
We will create and distribute the hilarious cartoon skewering the banks. If we are really very successful we will fix in the government and public mind the image of them as mere conjurors rather than the magicians or engineers they claim to be - and ensure the bailout goes to the real economy and real people - not the banks. How much we can do depends on you!
My team, Kay and Jonathan - plus a host of other wellwishers and concerned citizens who have become known as the Ethecal family... more on this and our plans to help during and post covid soon.
We will commission Richard Smith - an excellent and well seasoned cartoonist
