HSBC scraps interest-free overdrafts for students

Thousands of students are threatening to leave HSBC because of the bank's decision to scrap interest-free overdrafts; and the National Union of Students is planning a protest outside HSBC's headquarters in Canary Wharf next week. Well, this is just typical of students, isn't it? If only these godless communists would get to grips with the concept of mystical capitalism, then all their troubles would melt away.

O you bankers of HSBC, in your tower at Canary Wharf, do not fear the wrath of the mob. Pull up the drawbridge and prepare your cauldrons of boiling oil. Fortune favours the brave! Interest-free overdrafts are an abomination!
