Northern Rock West London Close Doors

Recommended Posts

northern rock west london closes its doors to customers, shouting on streets.

A bank is not allowed to close its doors during business hours. If it does it means it is BANKRUPT.

I expect that quite a few more branches will have run out of cash and have to turn away angry customers before the day's out. Furthermore, there's speculation on Sky News that customer's internet accounts have been frozen.

uh oh, they have run out of the paper stuff at that store, time for a new delivery?

Yeah, like someone said yesterday, they're just like Tesco's and money is beans. But they ain't got a bean.

Guest happy?

This does apply in the case of the Bailey Building and Loan Co. However I am not Lionel Barrymore and you are not living in It's a Wonderful Life. It's important to differentiate between a Hollywood Movie and English Bankruptcy regulations.

If it is true and it's not just dinner time then don't think you will be seeing on prime time news.

Russia tests the bigest conventinal bomb in the world and it gets 5 seconds air time and yet what Mrs X thinks about Mrs Y gets full air time.

Propaganda has hit new heights

Obviously not true. My local bank in a small Scottish town in always closes for lunch. Always has done.

I said business hours, if you would take the time to read what I wrote. If your bank closes for business at lunch then lunch is not considered business hours to them.

God, it's got the horrible fascination of a motorway pile up.

Does anyone remember the last time a UK bank was besieged by hordes of panicking depositors?

I'm 32 and I'm sure I've never seen it before :o

Huge queue shown on the news - but only about twice as many as I've queued up behind in the Nationwide on a Saturday morning and only about normal post office queue length.

BCCI. I was only 10 but I remember the fallout, mainly because at the time my dad said "why do these idiots put money into banks you've never heard of?"

What about the other banks? Should we all start withdrawing our savings ...just incase?

It depends on how much you've got invested and the penalties for doing so. If you're not going to incur any major wrath by forfeit and it would make you feel safer, then why not?
