    ...he'll probably get banged up for longer than most rapists...the holy doller/Euro pound being sacred in our mixed up societies.

    I hope he gets "banged up" for a long time...and his managers.

    What he's done is absolutely no worse than stealing stationary or computers from work.

    If the bank goes down, they can all get new jobs with their banking skills.

    He is a true socialist, taking money from a bank and distributing it among the many. I mean the money hasn't been lost, just shuffled round a bit.

    We should applaud him.

    SO who's sitting pretty with £3.75Bn in their back pocket?

    If he lost it, someone must have won it? So why is it bad for the economy? :idea:

    I can't get fired up by this story.
    If it was a bank depot raid involving vans, balaclavas, sawn-off shotguns etc I'd be livid.
    This bloke in France presses a few buttons on his PC at work and all this dosh electronically disappears into the ether.

    Unfortunately money doesn't obey a conservation law. It can be created or annihilated instantly.

    In my case I have a problem with the creation aspect :sad:. The annihilation bit is a breeze :biggrin:

    How? If I gamble, say, £3.75 and lose, the bookie is £3.75 richer.

    Where did the £3.75Bn go to?

    But money is an abstract value put on material goods... matter.... and matter cannot be created or destroyed.

    of course the bloke could be a scapegoat, or being paid handsomely for his inconvenience…

    Do you have any evidence of that? Or are you just making stuff up because a really big number needs a really big cause to make it sit comfortably?
