  • no sub-prime in the UK?

    Such a definition doesn’t make any sense. It’s a rising tide, a club – if you like – that gets bigger and bigger with the passing of each day, as the ‘slump’ hits greater parts of the economy.

    There are probably lots of people who a year ago were regarded as anything but, but now are clearly subprime. All it takes is a big mortgage, credit card debts and then the loss of your job in banking or as an estate agent……that probably covers 45% of the people in London.
