|Hester contemplates jumping off a high place|
Would you have taken the money if you had been Stephen Hester?
Putting aside whether he should have got it, or whether he deserves it, if it was in his contract, I think he should have got it. I don't think it should gave been in his contract in the first place, but how many of us would have taken it, had we had the chance? I don't think either that Goodwin should have to give back his knighthood. There are many other bastards, most of them Lords who should have been striped of their 'honours'. Indeed many of the fuckers, particularly politicians, should have never been honoured in the first place. If we are going to continue with an outdated system of 'rewarding' people for doing their job, it should just be people who are inspirational, helped their fellow me or raised a lot of money for charity, apart from Bob Geldorf, that is. He only ever sang one decent song and his charitable efforts merely enriched him by extending his career. Same goes for that bastard Paul McCartney, he's another hopeless twat.
