Interesting Fact - Money

Barclays, Britain's third-largest bank, has announced it is going to cut between 10 and 12,000 jobs worldwide, 7,000 based in the UK.

(This is on top of the 7,650 jobs it cut in 2013. The reason for the cuts is a downturn in profits, but here's where the money doesn't add up - they are paying out £2.4 billion in bonuses and other "incentives".

I'm glad I don't bank with them, as changing bank accounts is a fiddly business in the UK.)
