How Surprising

Mortgage costs unlikely to come down despite Bank of England's £50 billion bail-out

Mortgage costs are highly unlikely to fall despite an unprecedented £50 billion emergency bail-out for Britain's banks and building societies, homeowners have been warned. This will be exacerbated by GB/AD asking the lenders to be soft on those who fall behind. This will cost the lenders and that extra cost will need to be soaked up from everyone else.

  • that <> being the other borrowers who will pay higher rates as the Abbey has already shown by example. A few months of that and the money’s back in. Business is business – regardless of Darling Brownnose’ procrastinations

    £50bn is a drop in the ocean and a political load of cobblers

  • I think the US subprime will be the catalyst which kicks off the UK subprime….and a far bigger and far nastier mess it is likely to be.

  • British Banks or their apologists have been saying for months that unlike their US counterparts they have acted responsibly/prudently over the last decade and were being ‘punished’ by the lack of liquidity help they were getting from the BOE in contrast to the Fed/Ecb assistance. Bit like Brown/Darling blaiming it all on the yanks. Good to see Mervyn King finally put them right – ‘rather wild lending..’ Does he read this site ?
