Did grief prompt Bob Diamond to write a poem for his Barclays staff?

July 5th, 2012 by

"Those were the days" My Barclays friends!"

Dear friends,

When Bob Diamond left the Barclays HQ in Canary Wharf for the very last time – apparently the entire Barclays workforce became distraught .

This outpouring of collective corporate grief seemingly  prompted Bob-suffering his own grief- to write a poem in their honour;-

“Those were the days my Barclays  friends!”

” I love Barclays so much,

That I have forsaken the only job,

That meant anything to me.


Barclays is about the people,

My friends,

My Barclays friends,

Who day in, and day out,

Do their level best

To serve,

And to help.


What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Ian Taplin ,the Lloyds Bank Whistle-blower received a letter from a Lloyds Bank  Corporate lawyer on Monday 17th October 2011- which contained intimidating language and threats of legal action .

Mr Taplin,53,resident near Windsor, England describes how when he opened the letter he felt the cold sweat of corporate bullying and intimidation descend upon him.

“ My hands were shaking and I suddenly felt faint.I went to my lounge chair to sit down and I accidently sat on the neighbourhead cat-now known as “Mister Ethical Mistoffelees.”

“Mr Ethical Mistoffelees was not amused and sloped off in a huff. I never saw him for the  rest of the day.This was  on Monday”

But yesterday on Tuesday morning he came back and wrapped his tail around my leg  as if to say;-

“I forgive you for sitting on me during my cat  nap.”

He then jumped up onto my desk and knocked over my coffee cup and spilt the contents of my coffee cup all over the Lloyds Bank Corporate Lawyer’s nasty letter.
