Yes, more non-Hazel stuff...
I'm in full agreement that something needs to be done about all this financial malarkey. What needs to be done, I don't know; hence why I used the phrase 'financial malarkey'. I was impressed with David Cameron's comments this morning, though I hope his temporarily nonpartisan approach doesn't allow Brown to get away with the problems he has caused. But I'm already disliking the rather deceitful way in which Brown and Darling have presented this protection for savings up to £50,000 as them reacting to the situation.
This was something the FSA suggested to the government back in May this year. And Darling announced his intention to implement this idea in July, with the goal of having the protection in place by the autumn or early 2009 at the latest. So really all Labour are doing is something they said they were going to do anyway. Don't be fooled into thinking this is quick and decisive action being taken - it isn't.
