Little pig, little pig, let me come in…

Angry savers target Bank of England

Campaigners warned that savers are being taken for "mugs" as soaring energy and household costs have exacerbated the bleak future they are facing. A combination of high inflation and the Bank of England's base rate being held at a historic 0.5pc low has left savers struggling to find accounts which will give them a real return. The consumer price index (CPI), a broad measure of the cost of living, increased to 4.5pc in August, moving closer to a three-year high. Members of campaign group Save Our Savers will voice their anger outside the Bank tomorrow, at the same time as the next base rate decision is announced.

  • This article is dated Thursday 6th October and then they say the group will voice their anger outside the Bank tomorrow, at the same time the next rate decision announced.

    Isn’t the decision today?

    I hope this gets some coverage on the news channels.

    Good luck to them.

    Do you think Merv just thought, “I’ll show those f4ckers!”, and hit the big red QE button. Certainly seems coincidental timing!

    Well, good luck to them, at least they’ve made their feelings known, hope it works out for them.

    Well, If they are still ‘saving’ in the conventional way, then they ARE mugs as far as I can see.
    Banks can only ‘mug off’ the customers that allow it to happen. If you don’t want them to treat you like a mug, withdraw your balance. For God’s sake, stop playing the hapless victim card and do something about it besides moaning.
