    Whoops - Alliance and Leicester shares down 31%. Best get onto their website while you can or get in that branch queue. Although I'm sure it will all be fine

    Bradford and bingley are now at 279, down 50 in a day and were up at the 500 mark a while back. Glad I held onto those then!
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    What's up with the A&L? Have got quite a bit of cash with them, should I be forming a queue?

    Sounds like another bank/hedge fund managers are to blame: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6999532.stm

    I think in this particular case, in contrast to NR, it is "panic".

    Good point ... I reckon buying shares in Mortgage lenders now is a good strategy ... at the end of the day they all have millions of people oweing them money already. ... just because getting a mortgage right now will be harder to achieve than say a week ago doesn't mean that they are all going to collapse and the whole English monetary system will be devalued to such a point that we will suffer hyper inflation and be taking wages home in wheel barrows.

    Good idea. I'm selling all my gold and oil stocks and putting them into Northern Crock.
