Is the project title incorrect?

Surely it can't be Project Verde?

EU is not Europe

The branch closure programme is EU-mandated, not "Europe mandated". The EU is not Europe.

Moved from the pile of poo

After many years as a loyal customer I did what they say not many people do and moved banks (people don't do this for good reason even with the new easy move schemes it is a pain in the arse).

Lloyds just keep piling fees on fees on fees onto everyday things and I had had enough.

Moved personal and business accounts as far away from them as possible. Bloody money grabbing gits.

Right sorry just had to get that off my chest.

Pin the blame on the Gordo.

It was his insane idea to save Scottish jobs with English money that did for Lloyds. It was in good shape. I've heard on the grapevine that Balls and Brown had the Lloyds board of directors in meetings for 24 hours straight, bullying them to take on HBOS. Make of that rumour what you will.

Just switched my account to Handelsbanken. Real service and a real bank manager who makes real decisions. What an absolute delight.

Might as well just call it "Bank of Bank"

What's the (actual) alternative now? Santander?

Santander?

They just outright steal your money and then charge you for the privilege. They also have the worst customer rating of any bank in the country. They also bought Alliance & Leicester out an are well on their way to reform that bank in their own money grabbing image.

Thank goodness we bought the banks out and now have a nice competitive market with clearly defined differences between the all the banks

ohh wait that's right

Strikes. Hmmm are the two related?

Lying liars

Lloyds is pulling out 15 countries just months after senior management explained that the reason IT jobs were being shipped off to India was to improve and expand the companies global presence.

What a bunch of lying cunts.
