It is incredible the amount of ignorance displayed whenever you read comments on this subject. For example the majority view seems to be that if all the banks fail this won't affect me - seemingly believing that their biscuit tin of fivers is safe.
A goodly amount of comments obviously come from the public sector workers (or benefit scroungers as I like to call them). Again they seem to think that tax income is as safe as, er well as safe as the Bank of England, seeing no connection between economic activity and taxation.
I find such ignorance almost as depressing as the situation itself
