Luck is a chance happening, or that which happens beyond a person's control. Luck can be good or bad.

Luck is what Alistair Darling had when the public trusted that the Government would guarantee all deposits in the Northern Rock Bank, thus bringing to an end the run on the bank. So there it is, the British economy is run on Lady Luck... What will this do to house prices? Well as we all know the Darling Gorden's luck will one day run out!

When then luck runs out, then the lendor of last resort is the miracle!
