    Good Work, Guardian? Yes, For Once? 


    Quite appalling that Barclays refused to hand over an old lady’s money…

    she was told last September that the bank was closing her account on 28 December because of Brexit.. 

    …till a Guardian journo intervened.

    No circumstances changed – the banksters just dragged their feet, until finally they had to cower from potentially bad publicity

    https://www.theguardian.com/money/2021/jul/26/barclays-brexit-account-closures

    But what about other issues we have seen raised about Barclays, such as their kow-tow memo?

    Barclays memo tells staff ‘black lives matter’

    https://www.fnlondon.com/articles/barclays-memo-tells-staff-black-lives-matter-20200603

    No assertion by Barclays that…

    ALL LIVES MATTER?

     

    …but Barclay’s is unfortunately not the only bank up to its neck in partisan politics…

    .

    Lloyds Bank, Still Funding Secretive Europhiles! 

    …not least Lloyds.

    Funding, collaborating with a rabid Europhiliac pressure group that boasts about its furtive meetings with business interests?

    Their response to complaints was pathetic then too!

    Keep track of what your bank is up to.

    If you are a share-holder, use your rights toquestion and condemn politicises roguery! .

    If you have an account, close it!

    And soon we’ll be taking a look at the Bank of England!

    EUSSR – Barclays Bank Still Funding Enemy Within? 


    The Centre for European Reform is a think-tank devoted to making the European Union work better and strengthening its role in the world.

    That’s not opinion – it’s what the CER says about itself!

    …..

    And if you are a share-holder in Barclays Bank, or even hold an account with Barclays, you are therefore helping this Europhiliac elitist crew make their dream come true!

    ..

    If you have a share-holding, act to stop this political contribution.

    If you have an account, close it!

      I have nothing to do here, isolated but at least with family, so I have been looking at that list of companies who donate to this EU fan club. It’s horrifying, HSBC, Vodaphone, Lloyds Bank, I had no idea and most people don’t either.
      We need to get this information out.
      I hope you are just starting with Barclays today, you should give each of them the same treatment.

    Expat Money Troubles – Who’s To Be Trusted? 


    An English friend here in Jakarta had a terrible time getting his work pension payments transferred here from The Old Country last year.

    Eventually, when he was very ill, and his Indonesian wife was on the phone with the well-known international bank concerned, he shouted loudly –

    ‘If I just die, will that solve the problem?’

    • 'How am I going to check my email now..?'

      ‘How am I going to check my email now..?’

      0000

    • Happily, he didn’t die, but one gets the impression from some financial institutions that we overseas customers are truly seen as a mere inconvenience.

    Fidelity FundsNetwork on FCA complaints list

    October 2016

     Fidelity FundsNetwork has been named alongside banking giants Barclays, HSBC and Santander in receiving the most investment-related complaints in the first half of the year.

    High finance looks down on us mortals?

    ———–

    And even back in Blighty, the snooty lords of high finance are often fairly cavalier in their dealings with small investors.  

    I myself have had a few run-ins with people in The City who ought to know better than needlessly antagonise a cantankerous retiree of Ulster-Scots descent.

    Sometimes I have won – amazingly, by the simple method of pointing out common-sense solutions which they appear to be incapable of noticing themselves – but if you can’t get it sorted, there’s always the good old advice –

    ‘Write to your MP!’

    Oh-oh!

    Thanks to Cameron’s failure to honour the Tory pledge to give expat Brits their votes back, anyone resident abroad for more than 15 years doesn’t have an MP!

    Still subject to Inland revenue, of course – none of that nonsense about ‘no taxation without representation!’

    0000000000000

    ———-

    Will Theresa May prove more honourable than her predecessor?

    Wouldn’t be hard!

    ——————

    However, there’s another option.

    Here’s the details of the UK Financial Services Ombudsman, the body mentioned in the article above.

    How to complain – Financial Ombudsman Service

    They can’t solve everything, but it’s worth a try.

    And Canadians in such plights have an equivalent.

    If expats from countries other than the UK and Canada have similar info for their fellow-citizens, please feel free to send them in as comments.

      No taxation without representation! It’s an old slogan but it’s still a fair demand, and the British Government has some cheek chasing up British expats for taxes when they refuse to give those same people the right to vote.

      I am sure your English friend isn’t the only one to have that kind of trouble and I’m not surprised the ombudsman gets so many complaints about those companies like Fidelity that think once they have your money they can treat you any old way they like.
