    Anyone have any idea how to go about trying to claim money back from a company that's gone down the pan? Out over 100 after Jessops went bust the day after they processed an order for me. The website isn't very helpful.

    @Megapocalypse If you ordered on credit card it may be protected. I'd check with the card provider ASAP

    @Megapocalypse if you bought it using a credit card you can get your money back from the card issuer.

    The only surprising thing about HMV closing is that it's taken this long.

    This really is starting to get scary. I appreciate that prices drive competition, but I shudder to think of a future high street which is populated by nothing but Starbucks, McDonalds and Tesco.

    It's the shape of things though.

    When did you last pay high street prices for anything apart from food and clothes?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I do feel bad for the assistant that searched high and low to find me their last Back to the Future DVD when I went in last week.

    They won't be though, as there will be no shops to warrant people going to their local high street anyway. So Starbucks, McDonalds etc will close their stores as uneconomical.

    It happened where I live years ago with McDonalds and Burger King, and this is junk food central (judging by the number of pizza/curry/chip shop/Chinese flyers we get through the door)

    We could see the start of a move towards a more socially focused town centre though. If the city centre is not a retail park then why not put more parks in, theatres and street cafes, more seasonal markets throughout the year?

    I read somewhere that some places were doing this and it was working out. Obviously it won't suit everywhere but i'd say in a decade most centres will be offices or civic areas rather than shops.

    I think there used to be a link between HMV and Waterstones. So much so, that you could use their voucher cards in both shops.

    RBS Libor fines of c400m.

    This is a phrase of interest to me:

    'The division is expected to be broken up into two new units, covering corporate advisory work and financial markets trading activities respectively.'

    Is that so they can carry on doing dirty deeds but can now claim that it was another department and they weren't told about it, guv. Communication breakdown etc.

    Or will it help keep the greedy basts in line.

    Also, 'Bankers not taxpayers will pick up the bill.'

    Charming. Taxpayers were a major beneficiary of the Libor fixing in the first place.

    Oh absolutely, and they should take all of the blame and the brunt of the punishment. I don't see the exchequer volunteering to repay the money they made from the banks' Libor manipulation though.

    @LeoliansBro So the banks got stitched up by the Government? That's got to be a first in history.

    I find it kind of unbelieveable that the narrative has gone from blaming firms to punishing individuals but there still seems a huge reluctance to actually do much about changing the underlying systems and removing the circumstances that allowed Libor etc to actually happen.

    Lots of condemning certain institutions & publicly shaming individuals into giving up bonuses but no actual plans to change things in the long term it would seem.
