    I am indeed Mr Banjoman.

    Um... since refreshing the BBC HBOS has now dropped to 36.67%.

    HBOS, Barclays and RBS are the names that are getting flung around at the moment. Barclays particularly. I'm adding them to my Dead Pool list, which currently stands as:

    Morgan Stanley
    Goldmann Sachs
    Barclays.

    I reckon all three will be Chapter 11 or bought within three months. Reckon William Hill will take my bet?

    Remain calm. The market is having a wobly because of uncertainty in the future. It's "normal" in current conditions. i.e. it's how you would expect investors to react. SELL SELL SELL ITS ALL GOING TO SHIT!

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Hey, I have a mortgage with RBS. What'll happen if they collapse? Hope they lose my paperwork so I can stop paying it.

    Sadly Northern Rock kept hold of my house deeds / nutsack / bank details for the repayment direct debit, so I don't think it works that way ;o)

    Fuck it, might as well.

    If it all goes wrong, just run to the Feds and ask them to pay off your debts. In the unlikely event that that fails, just file a Chapter 11 and swan off in your flash new car.

    That's how it works, right?

    I was also just wondering this... Northern Rock doesn't count because they were saved by the government.

    But what happens if a bank that you have debts/mortgage with goes completely under. Do you lose your house?

    I guess someone else (a debtor) gets your loan as part of any repairations. Could be bollocks that though.

    Personally I think we should have a whip round and see if we can get enough together to buy our own bank. We could give it a witty name and everything :)

    I've got the strap-line:

    I walk past the RBS London HQ every day. They have a sign in the foyer that says:

    "Security status: Black"

    I'll let you know if it changes to "Panic" :)

    That's 250 - was ABN until 6 months ago. Mind you, most of the buildings round there are RBS these days.
