    Also it was under Lab. Tories came in in May 2010. The crisis was in 2008.

    Your correct it was Labour, Alistair Darling going ape sh!t to Lenihan in Dublin on the state of the banks here. Where does the time go. According to your link, a bank rescue package totalling some 500 billion (€560 Billion approx), a mega crisis needing an enormous sum of money certainly.

    The audience was more hostile than usual... Britain is divided without a doubt... and the Brexit shambles hasn't even really started...

    Those who are anti-Brexit and anti-Tory (not that if you're one it follows you're the other too) seem to be getting their mojo back... and about feckin' time too.


    I always afforded respect to the BBC for News from Europe and the Atlantic Isles in particular, but lately they have been coming across in many reports citing the "deep divisions" which exist in the United States.

    What has happened with these people that they can not see the massive division Brexit has caused in their very own divided kingdom?

    The taxpayer put in 50billion.
    The bank of England put in 200billion-short term loans.
    The government give a temporary guarantee of 250billion.

    The plan provided for several sources of funding to be made available, to an aggregate total of 500 billion in loans and guarantees. Most simply, 200 billion was made available for short term loans through the Bank of England's Special Liquidity Scheme. Secondly, the Government supported British banks in their plan to increase their market capitalisation through the newly formed Bank Recapitalisation Fund, by 25 billion in the first instance with a further 25 billion to be called upon if needed. Thirdly, the Government temporarily underwrote any eligible lending between British banks, giving a loan guarantee of around 250 billion.[5] However, only 400 billion of this was 'fresh money', as there was already in place a system for short term loans to the value of 100 billion.[6]

    Tearing up the agreement reached with nearly thirty other European democracies is not defensible in a continent which was reduced to ruin on many occasions by imperial and totalitarian war.

    The reason it is supported is due to the gutter London media waging a propaganda war against the EU for decades.

    We should not be surprised as the same gutter London media waged a propaganda war against the Irish for centuries.

    That happened especially when a million people were dying of hunger during the famine.

    Staying in the EU would also result in austerity

    UK fiddling the figures.............. it has added stuff like Military Pensions and other stuff into the figure for Defence spending so increasing the % without doing anything.

    British Army has 80,000 enlistees
    Royal Navy has 30 combat ships, 6 Destroyers, 13 Frigates, 11 Subs of which 4 are ballistic nuke subs and all never at see at same time.
