Eric says kill the banks
Once upon a time, Eric Cantona used to terrorise Premier League defences and the occasional Crystal Palace fan. Now it looks like it’s some of the world’s largest financial institutions he poses a big threat to. That’s because of seemingly run-of-the-mill interview he granted to a French regional newspaper combined with the power of the internet
In his interview with Presse Océan, Cantona plays down the effect of protests and marches on the streets of French cities. In the process he hatches a plan to bring down the world’s banks!
King Eric suggested that rather than protesting, people should simply withdraw their money from banks. He is very much aware that this would cause the banking system to collapse.
He said: “The three million people with their placards on the streets, they go to the bank and they withdraw their money and the banks collapse. Three million, 10 million people, and the banks collapse and there is no real threat. A real revolution.”
With the video of the interview now going viral on the internet, the banks are getting a bit twitchy that Eric’s plan could become a reality.
