  • The G/Ments ‘official’ spokesman speaks – http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/robertpeston/

    “The City of London has never seen anything like it in its long and illustrious history.
    A quartet of our biggest banks have been negotiating all day today – and will continue to do so all through the night – with the Treasury, the Bank of England and the Financial Services Authority about how much capital we as taxpayers need to invest in them.
    Right now it looks as though first thing tomorrow Royal Bank of Scotland, HBOS, Lloyds TSB and Barclays will announce they’re raising up to £40bn in total.
    In the case of Royal Bank of Scotland, the sum of capital it’s being forced to raise is mindboggling – at least £15bn (and rising).
    Which is the kind of disaster that no chief executive can survive – which is why Sir Fred Goodwin’s resignation will be announced tomorrow, to be replaced by British Land’s Stephen Hester (as I mentioned in yesterday’s note).”

  • Breaking News – Japan Credit Crunch

    Following the huge financial problems rocking the very foundations of the U.S. economy and the run on Northern Rock and Bradford & Bingley in the UK, and the spectacular failures of Fortis and Hypo in Europe, uncertainty has now hit Japan hard. In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches.

    Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

    While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.

    Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal…
