This is the man who ran the Co-op Bank... three days after telling MPs how it lost £700m :roll:



The chairman who oversaw the near-collapse of the Co-operative Bank has been caught buying and using illegal drugs including crystal meth, crack cocaine and ketamine.
The Rev Paul Flowers, a Methodist minister, was filmed buying the substances just days after he was grilled by MPs on the Treasury Select Committee over the bank's disastrous performance.
In the shocking video, Rev Flowers, 63, is seen in his car discussing the cocaine and crystal meth he wants from a dealer in Leeds. He then counts out £300 in £20 notes and sends a friend to make the deal.

Former Labour councillor Rev Flowers yesterday apologised for his 'stupid and wrong' actions and blamed the 'pressures of my role with the Co-op Bank'.
Flowers was the £132,000-a-year chairman of the 'ethical' Co-op Bank from 2010 until May this year when he stepped down as the bank's financial woes became apparent. The bank lost £700 million in the first six months of this year.
On the day after his appearance at the Commons, Flowers sent a text reading: 'I was "grilled" by the Treasury Select Committee yesterday and afterwards came to Manchester to get wasted with friends.'

Their self-indulgences kill them which is, perhaps, how it should be. Odd to think how many of them die of the "same things" that kill the very poor.... just for different reasons.

The rent boy and trysts in rooms paid for by the Co-op: Escort reveals Flowers sent him emails to organise drug-fuelled sex from his work account

Ciaron Dodd said they met in plush hotel rooms paid for by struggling bank
The £650-a-night escort revealed messages sent by Reverend Flowers
Methodist minister used work account to arrange 'drug-fuelled threesomes'
Mr Dodd says relationship ended when Flowers refused to pay £2,000
Flowers allegedly met him through the escort website ‘Manchester Lads’

The humiliation of Paul Flowers worsened yesterday when a rent boy claimed the ousted Co-op chief hired him for sex.
Ciaron Dodd, 21, said they met in plush hotel rooms paid for by the struggling bank.
The Methodist minister, who was forced to quit his £130,000 role in June, showered him with gifts and took him for nights out to the theatre, said Mr Dodd.
The explosive allegations came as the Labour Party faced further damaging questions about its links with Flowers.

How much did Labour know about disgraced Co-op chief? Bank chairman quit council over gay porn and went to No10 meetings with Miliband and Balls
Flowers attended a Downing Street reception hosted by Miliband and Balls
Three meetings followed between Flowers and Mr Miliband
Labour knew two years ago that Flowers had been forced to resign as one of the party’s city councillors after gay porn was found on his computer.

Labour faced further damaging questions last night about its links with shamed Co-op bank chief Paul Flowers.
Pictures emerged of a lavish reception hosted by Ed Miliband and Ed Balls at 10 Downing Street for drug abuser Flowers and fellow Co-op grandees while Labour was in power.
Three meetings followed between Flowers and Mr Miliband.

Just what would have been the conclusions if all the normal banks had got into trouble in the banking crisis, yet the ethical Cooperative bank had just sailed through untouched? That would have been very difficult to justify for an apologist for the present structure.
If that were to happen, just imagine in who's interest it would be to put an incompetent corrupt individual in charge of the Bank. If you were inclined to that view the date of the appointment might tell you a little about how fast the wheels turn.

Though I think by this point everybody is fully aware the Co-op's alleged 'ethical' stance is total bullshit.

Ex Co-op Bank Chairman Paul Flowers Arrested

Former Co-op bank chairman Paul Flowers has been arrested in connection with a drugs supply investigation, police have said.

West Yorkshire Police said officers arrested the 63-year-old in the Merseyside area on Thursday night and he is being questioned at a police station in West Yorkshire.

Mr Flowers, a Methodist minister, was suspended by both the church and the Labour party following claims that he bought and used illegal drugs including crystal meth, crack cocaine and ketamine.

He has also been engulfed in allegations about gay sex, questions over his expenses claims at a drug charity and drink-driving.
