The Parable of the Unforgiving Banks?

In the news today, the banks the UK government have been bailing out and providing emergency loans to are reportedly being less than helpful when small businesses approach them for loans, and the UK Chancellor and the Business Secretary are unhappy about it. An odd thought popped into my head that this sounds rather like an old parable playing out in real life (though I can't really imagine the UK government changing its mind about rescuing the banks). But I can just imagine Alistair Darling thinking "Maybe I should ask the Archbishop of Canterbury to pop round to RBS and have a word".
