The Bank of Scotland (HBOS) is not a basket case, which is why more than one bank is anxious to take it over.
Peter Jones, in The Scotsman, 1 November 2008, writes:
"The story that is being put about that HBOS is a basket case and would end up being even more expensively nationalised cannot be right.
"If that was the case, Lloyds TSB would never have even contemplated buying HBOS." (Scotsman.com News)
And now that the UK government is providing money for the banks, there is no need for Bank of Scotland to be taken over.
The Scotsman has learnt that a foreign bank is interested in buying Bank of Scotland (HBOS) and has approached the UK government on how to proceed.
Could this foreign bank be JP Morgan Chase or some other bank linked to Jewish oligarchs?
The foreign bank has received assurances from the UK government that any bid would be treated equally to the one on the table from Lloyds TSB. (Overseas bank lines up to bid for HBOS )
The UK's Office of Fair Trading (OFT) watchdog has said it could be best for HBOS to remain independent, with government assistance. (Overseas bank lines up to bid for HBOS )
"HBOS shareholders should note that the OFT rejects the view that the takeover must go ahead because otherwise HBOS would have failed." (Mandelson's OFT brush-off raises huge questions )
Mandelson's partner linked with Lord Browne
However, UK government minister Lord Mandelson, who is of Jewish origins, has overruled the OFT and has given the go-ahead for the takeover by Lloyds TSB, whose chairman is the Jewish Lord Blank.
Lord Mandelson is reputed to have links to some interesting people (Mandelson, Montenegro, Rothschild, Mafia, Deripaska)
There is a suspicion that the takeover of the Bank of Scotland (HBOS) is part of a plot to weaken the Scottish Nationalists.
Alex Neil, of the Scottish National Party, said: "By any reading of this OFT report, there is no justification for this merger and every reason to stop it. It is outrageous that the so-called Business Secretary has allowed this merger to go ahead and totally ignored the implications for competition, both at a UK level with personal accounts and mortgages, and at a Scottish level for small and medium-sized businesses."
