What the bankers did next... a short film

Since the crash of 2008, British taxpayers have shelled out an incredible £1.2 trillion on bailing out and propping up the banks. Nearly five years on, the UK’s banking scandals seem never-ending. This Spinwatch film investigates the continuing culture of lobbying in the City.
