HBOS and RBS 'to be nationalised' in £50 billion state intervention

In a move which fundamentally changes the nature of banking, Gordon Brown decided the Government had no choice but to take a majority shareholding in both banks after he discovered they were far more vulnerable than had previously been thought.


It's even worse than the deal falling through. The UK gov't is taking majority stake in RSB & HBOS.

Wow! I wonder if nationalised banks can be forced to restart inter-bank lending?

Now Four of Britain's biggest banks will ask for up to £50bn and one off them is guess who? - Lloyds TSB. How can this be, As they where looking to take over HBOS up to only a few hours ago.
So what now they all of a sudden are in bother too. This all comes after the G7,G20 and the euro meetings. Seems to me strange to say the least.
Anyway heres the link.

They can go one better. The governments can guarnatee interbank lending. Combine that with the "nationalisation" of HBOS and RBC and....all your bank are belong to UK.

Interbank lending has already restarted on a small level in the UK.

I don't understand how nationalization of the banks will solve the problems. Part of the problem is the banks but more importantly the debt that the banks hold. Seems to me moving the bad debts from the private sector where they will go to be sold at a loss to being the responsibility of the government is going to bring the government down with it because the bad debts are not being solved.

Personally I think we are witnessing the failure of Fractional Reserve Banking and Fiat money. Fiat money has never worked and I don't see it working now. I think they are running around in circles trying to fix something that can't be fixed.

Precisely. The so called interbank lending is actually intergovernment lending at this point. Governments are foolish to endanger themselves over this Debt. Which doesn't really exist anyway.
