    Black wednesday did indeed effect a great many people adversely, can't argue with you about that.

    But there are many people who have benefited as a result of the financial innovation which i was talking about.

    Not least you, with the 0% finance for your new motor or your soon-to-mature bond.
    Although ofcourse your not a beneficiary, merely a complainer.

    I've just been extra careful with money & if there are elements in which you can gain from situations, only a fool would turn it down. There are however people in this country who are not as lucky.
    As for complaining - love it. Should be an Olympic sport.

    that in a nutshell is capitalism though isn't it. some people do better than others.....like this for example.

    OECD: UK has worse social mobility record than other developed countries | Business | guardian.co.uk

    What's the answer, wish the last few decades of neoliberalism never happened. Hand the new toys and cars and investment windfalls back ? i don't think so.

    It's clear that aspects of neoliberalism did work however, it's also clear that aspects clearly didn't work. Still won't be long until Thatcher's dead and I can party like it's 1999.

    Thanks for the Guardian Link - interesting.

    I'm happy with my bank as well :-)

    Firstly, they're called Smile - how can that not make you happy - and secondly they work in a "poo powered pyramid" (why smile?: where is smile) which is just fantastic (it's also quite a nice building in Stockport)
