Unfortunately I have the ‘pleasure of being a customer of Barclays’, mainly as it has a lot of my stuff anyway. For one thing, my mortgage was with Woolwich and then it merged with Barclays… what a swizz. Fortunately, it doesn’t have my household insurance, that’s something. I have got another Bank that can take my stuff but generally from my ‘mobile phone experiences’ it is best to stick with one bank so that if a problem arises, ‘they can talk to each other’.
Anyway, my bank rang me to ‘see how happy I am with Barclays’ and I did say that I was very concerned that Barclays support the arms trade and I was thinking of leaving. I think it is important that their own staff realise what kind of bank they are working for.
I don’t think they were expecting that.
I also suggested that they bring back their comments forms.. and of course, I can mention that they support the arms trade there as well.
