Boomtime is back for the bankers: they pocketed £10 billion in bonuses last year, official figures reveal.

Their bonuses shot up by 25 percent—£2 billion—on the year before, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Even more champagne will be flowing this year after the top banks announced record profits of £15 billion for the last six months alone.

The bankers have stolen our cash. We should take it back off them and use it to fund public services.
