What an insult.

Thanks Kirsten

Well as Kirsten said HBOS decided to make a statement prior to 9 this morning that they were donating.

I myself was expecting the £34 million put back in that they acquired from Findel plc

ERMMMMMM no what we got offered was £ 2 million - I was asked "was I not a even a bit pleased" to that i said "NO and I am sure I speak on behalf of everybody when I say that a company which makes profits of 4.8 billion which broken down to days is profit of £13.1 million per day - offering £ 2million is a drop in the ocean"!!!

HBOS have insulted us - on with the campaign!!!

:twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

As Suzy says this act of generosity on behalf of HBOS is a disgrace, WE (the forum) have set a precident, we have had a debate that was larger than that for Iraq.

We have the government listening to us, our MP's, Gordon Brown, everyone who is everyone is listening to what we have to say.

We have to fight this now with all the strength we can find, we have to make sure all our Halifax accounts are closed down, keep emailing HBOS, make sure everyone you know signs our petition.

What HBOS have offered is a disgrace to all of us.

DON'T BACK DOWN NOW - THE FIGHT HAS JUST BEGUN.

HERE, HERE!!! Damn well we set a precedent !!

2 million is a pittance and a disgrace - do they think we shall say "OH WONDERFUL HBOS THANK YOU FOR YOUR 2 MILLION WHEN YOU MAKE PROFITS of £13.1 million per day!!!!!!!

Oh I am so angry I could burst!!! I am glad I never swore on radio dont know how the hell i stopped myself!
