No I believe prices will fall and am astounded that a so called Conservative led government could act in such a stupid way. As you can see from today, there are 2,000 HtB applicants and it has been on MSM none stop all day and they make up about 3.5% of a typical months mortgages.

BTL is a good potential way to bankruptcy and yes sometimes I make points to hopefully make people think.

I would like to know how they formed this list; very surprised to see Santander at No. 10, and I don't see how Barclays could have made the cut.

Barclays is all the way down there, the saving rates they pay you would think they were some kind of safe haven.

And if the bottom 5 fail then they all fail.
"For who has served me more faithfully than you with your coward's hope?" said he, "And where are the others that might have stood side by your side in the common good?"

"Dead," I whispered; and amiably "Murdered," the Hangman corrected me; "First the alien, then the Jew... I did no more than you let me do."

Beneath the beam that blocked the sky, none had stood so alone as I - and the Hangman strapped me, and no voice there cried "Stay" for me in the empty square.

I'm in the process of moving all my money out of Santander and putting most of it into NS&I Premium Bonds. A couple of 150 wins will outstrip the interest I earned this year and I've also heard them mentioned on the News. Plus I hate them and it's a good excuse.
Tell me all about it and start at the end.

But they pay like 3% interest on their savings account. My premium bonds give me about a tenner every now and then.
