Undercover bank run anyone ?
Looks like it to me, and has done for some time (imho etc etc)
This is desparate, back covering, horse/stable door/bolted stuff really. Whether you like it or not, all this is very bad for their reputation. I've got a mortgage with them, but wouldn't put savings anywhere near them.
It is diifficult to take seriously this kind of action. Cloaked as it is in some sort of moral and fiscal responsibility - when it's really just another drunk waking up after an enormous bender, bursting into tears and swearing never again.
TOO late - null points.

We have got into the habit of admiring colossal bandits, whose opulence is revered by the entire world, yet whose existence, once we stop to examine it, proves to be one long crime repeated ad infinitum, but those same bandits are heaped with glory, honors, and power, their crimes are hallowed by the law of the land, whereas, as far back in history as the eye can see -- and history, as you know, is my business -- everything conspires to show that a venial theft, especially of inglorious foodstuffs, such as bread crusts, ham, or cheese, unfailingly subjects its perpetrator to irreparable opprobium, the automatic dishonor, and inexpiable shame, and this for two reasons, first because the perpetrator of such an offense is usually poor, which in itself connotes basic unworthiness, and secondly because his act implies, as it were, a tacit reproach to the community. - Celine
