Talk about feasting while Rome burns

The Sun reports the following story :

"FATCAT Barclays bankers flew to Italy yesterday on an all-expenses paid bash — as the rest of the country was left in the financial meltdown"

In the article it's written that more than 300 guests have been invited to the annual meeting in Villa Erba, beside Lake Como, for a "three-day jaunt believed to be costing more than £500,000."

Barclays staff admitted the event “sent out the wrong message” at a time when millions of ordinary Brits were struggling to make ends meet, but that it was essential to “help clients through the difficult markets”.

Don't worry...it's Business As Usual!
