Nothing to quote or add.

Ex-HBOS finance director. 'I see no ships' type.

The reason for posting is the Skipton hovered up a few of the smaller, exploded Northern BS.

Have a look at Scarborough BS - they made NR look staid + conservative.

My brother took out out a mortgage with the Skipton 2 or 4 years - I know, I tried.

95% (when I thought they were impossible to get). At ~ 6-7%!!!!!

Sucks up about 60% of their joint take-home.

Fine as long as wifey does not get knocked up or either loses job.

I made a tentative enquiry with them last year for a self build loan. They were totally dismissive and the berk I spoke to seemed to think the end of the world had all ready taken place.

Maybe it has.

Their lending policies for the previous 2 years were pretty optimistic.

Reaping what they've sown I guess.

The guy's name is Mike Ellis.

Martin Ellis is a housing economist, not the former finance director.

To be honest bankers all look the same to me ;-)
