Awards: Bankers get unwanted recognition
Wednesday 10 October 2012
Champagne-swigging bankers beware – The Intruders have struck again. Two weeks after embarrassing former Treasury boss Dave Hartnett at an Oxford banquet, a video has been released showing the activists gate-crashing the Banking Awards ceremony, hosted by former BBC news anchor Peter Sissons (1).
Protester Rosie Rogers, 26, took to the stage at the Park Lane Hotel to award Barclays with a bottle of Bollinger for their "innovative" manipulation of the Libor interest rate (2).
Executives from the bank, which was fined £290m earlier this year for fixing the Libor rate, looked on embarrassed (3).
Mr Sissons was forced to intervene (4), ushering the intruders off the stage. The group vowed to target other corporate hospitality events soon.
