Wow and that's with the base rate at 0.5% thank god the Bankers have it all sussed, 0.5% base rate the lowest rate since 1694 yes, 1694 and people are still losing their houses, unfortunately it's all down to greed, many people have used their houses as cash machines, they went up, they extended their mortgage, couple of holidays, new car, keeping up with the Jones's or the Patel's.
So it's the Gubberments fault....wait no!!! it's the Bankers.......it's everyones fault, whatever happened to personal responsibility, if you join a Ponzi scheme make sure you get off early folks ;-)
