Did Goldman Sachs rig the bank-tax vote? Foul play suspected in Richard Curtis internet campaign

When actor Bill Nighy joined director Richard Curtis to launch a campaign for a 'Robin Hood tax' on banks, they were confident it would easily gain public support.

After all, the banks' behaviour had been blamed for bringing the economy to its knees - and this was a chance to raise money for worthy causes such as tackling poverty and climate change.
So when an online vote asking if people supported the idea suddenly began receiving 'No' votes at a rate of six per second, foul play was suspected.

Even more so when many of the votes were traced to banking giant Goldman Sachs.
