    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Cynic in me says something more serious was uncovered, delivered to top management of supervisory board, board had a chat with the offending party and said "Look, we have to fine you one way or another. Come up with something insignificant, pay a small fine and we close this right now."

Thats what I was thinking.  With that many trades not being tracked (which is BS, I know they had to know for their "front running accounts" with Goldman or whomever) they saw or did something.  Then decided to charge a 1 percent fee on the offenders or a certain dollar/pound amount on them so when the fine came (which is small compared to the hundreds of millions if not billions they transact) it wouldn't be enough to hurt them.  And at the same time they got away with throwing away the receipts with nobody except a few knowing anything.
