Mr Paulson, the founder of Paulson & Co, has bet against four of the five biggest British banks, according to filings made under a new regulatory regime on Tuesday.

...

However, the scale of the positions taken by Paulson, including a £350m bet against shares in Barclays; £292m against Royal Bank of Scotland; and £260m against Lloyds TSB, is unlikely to mollify critics of short selling.

Gosh, why would the biggest British banks be in trouble and at risk of their shares falling in value? This guy is clearly just malicious.
