From the BBC, Banks may get bail-out on Monday, we read:
The first banks to get money under the UK government's £50bn bank rescue plan could do so as soon as Monday morning.
The banks and the Treasury are working on announcements to be made before the markets open, according to BBC business editor Robert Peston.
He says the first banks to take up the recapitalisation are likely to be HBOS (Halifax Bank of Scotland) and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).“Will there be a global government with a benevolent dictator, overseeing global law, global police and a global judiciary in an attempt to make the world cleaner, peaceful and prosperous? If that’s what it takes to achieve these ends, so be it.” — from The Quickening by Art Bell, page 309
