Government mulling "People's Bank"

...so say Pravda.

We're about two steps away now, seriously. It'll start with the Post Office, then before you know it the government will get so desperate with banks not lending that they'll just merge them all into one nationalised bank. The People's Bank Of the UK. A year from now we'll all be taking our wages home in wheelbarrows and queuing up for two weeks to buy a loaf of bread.



The Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR), headed by Lord Mandelson, wants to broaden services at the 12,000 UK post offices.


God help us.

Doing business in a post office is like doing business live on national TV.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

They've been screwing the Post Office down for years and much as I dislike Mandelson the idea of using their network to re-establish a working banking system at local levels does seem reasonable.
At least the PO is not swamped with toxic debt and everybody loves them ( except the government for reasons which are not clear ).
