Didn’t the Scottish one get billions from the gummint after it screwed up its finances? Can us ordinary people get help like that?

Yes, it always struck me as odd that given the Scottish reputation for parsimony, that during the financial crash it was the Scottish banks that seemed to be in the most trouble!

Re: So how do you put money in the bank.

I logged on to my MBNA card tis morning to download a statement, which I have always ben able to do despite receiving paper statements.

However, the flashy new website now prohibits any download unless you sign up to paperless statements.


Illegitimi.

Exactly the same happened with EU money assigned to countries such as Greece.

As I understand it, Euro rules mean that Euro banks can't be bailed out directly, so the Greek bailout money went vie Greece to bail out those Euro banks, mostly German, who had been recklessly lending to Greeks. The money they had been lending went, via ludicrous projects, into various business persons pockets. Same as over here and the USA. All a bit of a scam, really.

Re: So how do you put money in the bank.

Been at least a year since I've written out a cheque and that was for a plumber who couldn't take a card payment and wasn't fussed if I payed cash or cheque.

The main danger of a full-on cashless system is banks introducing negative interest rates.

Re: So how do you put money in the bank.

Infrastructure projects always exceed the estimates because if an accurate forecast was made the project would not even start. So you have to half the realistic estimate and offer that as the project cost. You then have to ensure that you have got another job when the revised costs are revealed.
