Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My cynical guesss is that they see the nationalisation as unavoidable and thus want to get in early to influence the terms of the nationalisation and the nationalised banks. They do not actually love the "free market" they love the money it gives them and their brethren. So the important part is not if but how a nationalisation happens. So long as it is costly for the commons schmucks and pays huge salaries and bonuses it is all good.
