CITY VIEWS: DO YOU AGREE WITH SIR GOODWIN GIVING UP HALF HIS PENSION?

<strong>NORMAN HEMMING </strong>ACCENTURE<br />&ldquo;I&rsquo;m quite glad he did something, but I am surprised because I thought he would stand his ground. I didn&rsquo;t get the impression he was all that bothered about what the public thought of him, though I don&rsquo;t actually think this will be enough to placate them anyway.&rdquo;<br /><strong><br />HANNAH OLATUNDE </strong>BANKING LAWYER<br />&ldquo;I think there&rsquo;s a lot going on that we don&rsquo;t know about, but I did feel he was scapegoated a bit. In the current environment, the public wants the perception of fairness and accountability so that payment seemed crazy at the time, but others have received huge payouts too.&rdquo;<br /><br /><br /><strong>STEPHEN AUSTIN </strong>HYBRIDAN<br />&ldquo;Had the bank cut his pension, it would have been in breach of his contract, but as he is the one who&rsquo;s volunteered, it&rsquo;s fine. However, there may have been a lot of pressure on him, but this news does make you question what might have happened behind the scenes.&rdquo;<br />
