I'd like to clear my name too
It's fair to say everyone now agrees that we all deserve a banking inquiry in our lives.
We all deserve an opportunity to be savaged by a few sheep in public and the opportunity to make a long opening statement full of fake modesty and bogus contrition (that we will then not leak to the papers the Sunday before we appear, because that would be illegal).
It's typical though, isn't it? It's one law for the fat cats and the insiders, and another for the rest of us. We have to pay the price for them to all clear their names, but we don't get to clear ours at all.
