Record personal insolvencies

Record number of Britons to be declared insolvent: Telegraph

Mark Sands, personal insolvency experts Tenon Recovery's national head of bankruptcy, said: “I expected this year to be the worst on record but even I have been stunned by the level of personal insolvencies - we are sailing past the previous record and still have more than two months of the year to go. At this rate we expect to see as many as 130,000 personal insolvencies over the whole of 2009, an increase of 22 per cent on the levels seen in 2008. Even with interest rates close to zero, the effects of the downturn combined with the massive build up of consumer debt in the good years have created ‘a perfect storm’ that is sweeping more people into personal insolvency than ever before."

Seems to me much of the increase is down to the attractiveness of going bankrupt these days. One year ond you can be out and doing it again. Write it all off to experience and get some more loans. This is the dream...the Teflon "enterprise society" run on endless credit.

Base rates may well be 0.5%, but personal interest rates are 20-40% on this unsecured debts.

Banks are causing this.

Clearly this is where I am going horribly wrong!!! Being totally debt free and saving to pay for non-essential/luxury items and holidays etc is clearly a mug's game. Sod it...... think I'll run up a truck load of debt buying BMW's and plasma screen TV's and just stroll away from it at a later date.

Silly ol' me.

@5 "Banks are causing this"

If interest rates on unsecured debt was 0% people would still get themselves into debt problems. Have you ever lent money to someone who never paid you back? Did you blame the interest rate you were charging? *LOL*

THEY ARE ONLY HALF WAY THERE. A spine will be required now. looking at this thread you are putty in their hands.

Record personal insolvencies... See how it works, much more to come. What happened to the referendum. Yet you still sleep.

How many warnings do you need, A hundred will be too late.

How you suffered for your "sanity" Vincent. Listen to the song and cry. Only the minority can be truely sane as you will find out in time.

Morning spineless hero. You will now have to fight for your right for a true vote. Figure it out dumbo.

I will go when I am good and ready little thomas.

Look at the videos again, and next time don't suck your thumb and misplace your pathetic excuse for anger.

This song was never for you. "cry for your fellow man if he is worthy."

Tell me why the crime scene was shipped off to China in such haste.

Please reply and do not change the subject.
