Struggling Australians breathed a sign of relief today, when they read that the ‘relentless pressure‘ applied by Melbourne’s Herald Sun has forced a humiliating climb-down by the big banks and delivered the full interest rate reduction passed down from on high.
The paper reports that “Scrooge bank chiefs who had been silently sitting on the rate cut and gouging more than $4 million a day from their customers” faced a withering barrage of Twitter and Facebook incendiary bombs, eventually throwing up their hands and surrendering to the superior generalship of the editorial team at the Herald Sun, who generously gave the downtrodden a voice, and assured victory for the people.
Little Australian kiddies, can now sleep soundly knowing that they will get the XBox 360 Kinect AND their own Hi-Def TV to play it on this Christmas, and their parents at least, unlike our big banks, will experience the joy of giving.
We’re not a religious lot we Australian’s, but this festive season, Australian’s will surely be whispering a little prayer. “Thank God for Melbourne’s Herald Sun”.
