  • The performance of Applegarth and his gang was a disgrace – all a big unfortunate accident, due to unforeseen circumstances, it seems. If only they’d read this news blog. Looks like they expect to get off scott free – no apologies, no responsibility – in fact they actually blamed the BofE for not helping another bank to bail them out sooner. No doubt Applegarth and his pals will go on to greater things after collecting their fat bonus, courtesy of UK taxpayer.

    What a devious clown Applegarth is – he just won’t admit that Northern Rock are the subprime lender of choice in the UK and the markets had become wise to the fact, so, as in the US, no-one was interested in buying NR’s rubbishy MBS’s from a dodgy loan book any more.
