In the meantime, here's some email evidence (released in the FSA report), which also sets the scene.
1. Trader: 'When I retire and write a book about this business, your name will be written in golden letters'.
Submitter: 'I would prefer this (to) not be in any book!'
2. Submitter: 'Hi all, just as an FYI, I will be in noonish on Monday'.
Trader: 'Noonish ? Who's going to put my low fixings in ? hehehe'.
3. Submitter: '(A manager has) asked me to put it lower than it was yesterday … to send the message that we're not in the shit'.
4. Submitter to manager: 'We are therefore being dishonest by definition and are at risk of damaging our reputation in the market and with the regulators'.
5. Trader to manager, complaining about a submitter: '(He is putting in_ the highest Libor of anybody … He's like, I think this is where it should be. I'm like, dude, you're killing us'.
Manager to trader: 'Just tell him to keep it, to put it low'.
Submitter '(I will) see what I can do'.
6. External trader to a Barclays trader, asking for a lower Libor submission: 'If it comes in unchanged I'm a dead man'.
Barclays' trader promises to 'have a chat'.
External trader to Barclays' trader later that day: 'Dude. I owe you big time! Come over one day after work and I'm opening a bottle of Bollinger'.
7. Trader: 'Coffees will be coming your way, either way, just to say thank you for your help in the past few weeks'.
Submitter: 'Done … for you big boy'.
8. Swaps trader: 'Sorry to be a pain but just to remind you the importance of a low fixing for us today'.
Barclays’ senior Euribor submitter: 'No problem, I had not forgotten. The brokers are going for 3.372, we will put in 36 for our contribution'.
Swaps trader: 'I love you'.
9. Barclays trader to another trader outside the firm: 'This is the way you pull off deals like this chicken, don't talk about it too much, 2 months of preparation... the trick is you do not do this alone ... this is between you and me but really don't tell ANYBODY'.
