No, I don't think we are collectively to blame for Anglo's mistakes? How could we be?
And Anglo arent to blame for the thousands up to their neck in personal debt who borrowed for cars they didn't need, holidays abroad or got 100% mortgages on a house in the bog because they "had to get on the ladder".
We collectively fucked up. We voted in governments that encouraged the bubble, we didn't save, we borrowed loads, and we all called David McWilliams a ginger tosser when he said 10 years ago that this would happen.
Of course we could just blame the bonus culture in the banks if it helps us sleep at night
