Bank savings at risk!

« Media will push for T… | Home | Now three out of four… »

The credit crisis, which has been building slowly for the past year, is now moving so fast that governments around the world are finding it impossible to keep pace.

Although the Government has made clear there is an implicit guarantee on all personal savings, it is very reluctant to make that explicit because of the potential exposure of the taxpayer and the concern that it would be difficult to remove once the crisis is over.

But it seems likely that other European countries will be forced to follow Germany, increasing pressure on Britain to fall in line.

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
"

From William Shakespeare's "Macbeth"
