How the UK is getting on… especially Scotland:
Banks ‘were close to collapsing’ (but the UK has now turned the corner) by BBC News
Why a Lloyds TSB takeover of HBOS is bad news for the Scottish high street by The Scotsman
Mum is still keeping her fingers in her ears and going ‘lalalalala’ so I just told her the governor of the Bank of England says we’ve turned the corner. And we might be able to save money on broadband and phonecalls if we switch to Sky.
It was me who said the last bit, not the governor of the Bank of England, but it cheered her up anyway.
