On this shore the drill is: "It's bad, but it 'could have been worse', and since we were present when it 'wasn't worse' we are entitled to pie for being present, if not actual applause."

Most of the Sheeple are buyin' it, Sir......

Stormin - I have a mortgage with them - that's not the point.

They have not been lending to existing customers, i.e. they have turned them away once their mortgage has finished...

I find it very galling especially when just 2 days ago, NR were instructed that they must start lending again. i.e. they are not fulfilling the function they should be, despite getting public money.
