    Oi! All the banks were doing it...we were not looking to gain any financial advantage, just to level the playng field. What would you have done in the same circumstances?

    They say that, but everyone knows some banks respond better to interest rate fixes than others...
  • And what about all those other banks that weren't fixing the interest rates? They didn't stand a chance.

    I feel for the Cottishall Village Building Society that dared give evidence to the Financial Ombudsman :(

    "Ms McDermott added: "Rabobank's flawed
    assurances and failure to get a grip on what was
    going on in its business were extremely
    disappointing."

    I have never heard a bank job refer to as "extremely disappointing". Criminal maybe.
