Banking stocks soared today on news that the George Osbourne and Mervyn King policy for the Bank of England to give cheap money to the banks to enable them to provide credit to the wider economy. Off course the reason offered is just smoke and mirrors propaganda, the real reason why the Bank of England is yet again stuffing every orifice of the UK Banks with tax payer cash (where ultimate liability lies) is ahead of the high risk of Eurogeddon on Monday following outcome of Sundays Greek election.
The propaganda has been swallowed by the mainstream press despite the fact that very similar propaganda has been repeatedly used by the Bank of England for the past 3 years to pump ever more cash into the Bankrupt Banks that to date collectively totals more than £600 billion when taking capital injections, and quantitative easing into account, and what has all that money done for credit to businesses ?
Has it increased lending ?
So what will today’s £140 billion do for lending?
NOTHING! Because the money is not for the UK economy but for Britain’s bankrupt zombie banks to be kept on life support as a consequence of the counter party losses they will face following a Grexit. At the end of the day the bankrupt banks NEVER pay for their loses, YOU the tax payers are expected to!
