    Default UK customers withdrew a record £2.3bn in January

    The British Bankers' Association said that customers withdrew £2.3bn in January, the biggest drop since records began.



    Looks like everyones living on the war chest then?

    Doomed in a few months.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Well Dim, I could be the only one here who thinks this is bad news on every front.

    Not if it's being spent.
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    I paid quite a lot in. It still pays more than keeping it under the mattress offsetting the mortgage.
    Sval-Baard Consulting Ltd - we're not satisfied until you're not satisfied.

    Nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational signature about being a winner.

    It's being used by parents to help their unemployed/student children, by people to pay off debts, including mortgages etc. There is simply no incentive to save at the current interest rates, but there are very good reasons to clear debts.
