Default Uk government propses plan to save uk banks

the uk government has today announced a 500 billion deal to save uk banks
which includes a 50billion cash injection by the uk government to banks and up to 250billion short term loans from the bank of england and 200 billion in debt grantee to banks
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7658277.stm

personally i think this whilst putting taxpayers money at a small bit of risk i think something needs to be done to save the banks from going under because if that happens the cost of fixing the problem will be far in excess of 50billion

When you do the conversion, that's more than what the US used for their version of the bailout. ( ~ 873B USD) And our main index (Dow Jones Industrial) has dropped 14% in the last 5 market days as a result. It will be interesting to see what the UK markets do with news of this bailout.

but i think that our bailout plan also has restrictions with it , for instance banks that will benefit from this plan are going to have to agree to fsa regulations on executive bonus's and dividends ,

also not all of this money is exact capital that will be made available , for instance you can subtract 250billion as that will infact be repayable loans from the bank of england
