The following link is interesting reading. http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/publications/Documents/news/2012/nr156.pdf Recent planning by the US and the Bank of England to use depositors funds (over the insured limit) and shareholders 'investments' (not taxpayer funds anymore), to recapitalise a bank in the event it takes too many risks and goes belly up. Some may argue it was ever thus, that there was always an insured amount and everything over that was uninsured, which is strictly true, but it's interesting that after the bailouts of 2008 we're now entering 'bail-in' territory by official legislation. Never been more important to spread your wonga as far and wide as possible and not have it all sat in one place.....(if you're lucky enough to have over £85k!).
