Expat victims of crash count cost

2009-10-05 23

“Not one British saver has lost a single penny.” That was how the Prime Minister summed up the banking crisis to last week’s Labour conference.

The UK Shareholders Association was quick to point out that “all savers have lost out from the financial crisis in banks and the impact it has had on the wider economy”.

But Gordon Brown has conveniently blanked the thousands of British savers who woke up a year ago this week to find their life savings had been seized by the UK Government – and have yet to be returned.

Many have lost six-figure sums, some because they had large amounts on deposit following property sales. There has been human distress among retirees, families and single people who have lost much of what they worked for, and at least one suicide.

I heard that GB in his Labour party Conference speech stated that no British saver had lost a penny in the economic crisis. Does anyone have a link to objective evidence of this, preferably a video.

I have just posted a new News Item, which seems to me to be very important, given that it is the Deputy Chairman of the Treasury Select Committee who has written it.
