It is difficult for the American and British governments to consider moral issues involved with the banking crisis (called worldwide because that's how far it has spread.) After all, they have either knowingly or otherwise accepted funds from corporate organisations of every hue, not least of all banking.
But that doesn't stop politicians being honest with the electorate whose votes should count more than money. Trust is very important, whatsoever the game.
President Obama knows a great deal of money has been spent lobbying those in politics, either side of the pond, but he has to consider the views of the majority of the American people irrespective of the amount of funds given to gain influence. These must be viewed as so much water under the bridge.
