Making hay while the sun shines...

... in the best tradition of governments that can see the end is nigh and just don't give a good fuck anymore (my emphasis).
Ministers are drawing up plans for a tax raid on Britain’s banks worth hundreds of millions of pounds, The Sunday Telegraph has learned.

The radical move, being considered as a way of forcing banks to pay a price for the taxpayer-funded bail-out of the financial system, could include a one-off “windfall” tax on profits.
It would have been cheaper and simpler not to have bailed them out in the first place, you feckless cunts.
