    Mortgage arrears are growing at one of the UK's biggest mortgage lenders, the Bradford & Bingley (B&B).

    In a statement to investors ahead of its shareholders' AGM, the bank said some borrowers were finding it harder to repay their loans.

    More than half of the bank's home loans have been made to buy-to-let landlords.

    Yeah, it's my popcorn in the microwave. This has all the hallmarks of an epic story of greed, short-sightedness and comeuppance. I wonder if it'll have a happy ending?

    Only if the government stop cocking about with crappy interventions and let the market run its course.

    Most will have 1 but us mugs are paying for that one.
    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!

    I was about to say "don't worry, that Chris Rodrigues is a smart cookie. They'll be OK". But it turns out he left the B&B 4 or 5 years ago. They're doomed.
