It’s all shit

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The FTSE has dipped below 5,000 points for the first time in a couple of years after Sunday night’s announcement that Bradford & Bingley was to be nationalised and asset stripped. It’s gone into a downward spiral again today, along with the major world markets, on the back of the US congress’ refusal to approve a $720bn rescue package for the American banking industry.

The 4th biggest bank in the US, Wachovia, has been bought by its rival Citibank in a similar deal to the LloydsTSB/HBOS merger, the Benelux bank, Fortis, has been partially nationalised to stop if from failing and the Icelandic bank, Glitnir, has been nationalised.

Don’t worry, though, Gordo will save us.
