Just as I was sweet talkin’ Ms 73man about that Northern Rock SNAFU vis a vis my own savings in RaboDirect, I get a personalised email from the bankers reassuring me that my cash (or is it theirs?) is safe. You can see the thing as a JPG on my Flickr page. It’s absolutely riveting.
On the TV news last night, the correspondent was speculating if Northern Rock would have to up interest rates on the sums lent out to cover their higher costs or just take the hit. Now guess which one they’ll do in Ireland and which one they’ll do in the UK? Here’s a clue: not take the hit. I mean it is not as if its due to any decision they themselves took now is it?
