    I understand why you say that, but socialism is irrelevant really. It's not a distraction; even in a capitalist country a lot of people are concerned about the growing inequality of earnings. Just because you don't see bonuses as a problem doesn't mean it isn't a problem for a lot of other people.
    Which is socialism, admittedly after a fashion. In a captialist society you have the choice of 'shut up' or 'get a better job'.

    Its not the governments job to dictate bonuses (although, you could argue that with the like of RBS, it is, which is fair enough).
