    A sign for a branch of Lloyds TSB bank is seen in central London April 11, 2011. Britain's top banks should shield their retail operations from riskier investment banking activities and hold more capital to protect taxpayers from any future financial crisis, a government-commissioned report said. Proposals outlined on Monday appear harshest for Lloyds Banking Group, which may be forced to sell hundreds more branches in addition to the 600 already on the block in order to improve competition on the high street.

    The Irish flag flies above the General Post Office on O'Connell Street, in Dublin, Ireland November 27, 2010. Ireland entered the final hours of negotiations for emergency EU and IMF loans on Saturday with attention focused on the interest rate its taxpayers will be forced to pay to bail out their government and their banks. Thousands of demonstrators marched through the Irish capital's streets against the deal, which European Union leaders hope will prevent the crisis from spreading to Portugal and Spain and threatening the future of the euro.
