British Banking Commission Chairman Vickers Said HBOS Deal Was a `Mistake'
By Jon "John" Menon and Gavin Finch - Nov 26, 2010 3:42 PM GMT
John Vickers, chairman of the U.K.’s Independent Commission on Banking, said that it was a “mistake” to waive competition laws in 2008 allowing Lloyds TSB Group Plc to acquire HBOS Plc.

We may not actually become bankrupt. But I think that Gordon could have prevented the current misfortune anytime up to about 2005 when it became locked-in and inevitable, only the timing to be decided.
