UK May Create “Bad Bank”: “Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling said the British government remains open to creating a “bad bank” to buy toxic assets held by banks.”
Ironic, isn’t it? Create one central bad bank to absorb all of the bad assets out there. What happens when it implodes/explodes?

Bank of England Set to Run Printing Presses: “The Bank of England’s Governor paved the way last night to unleash the weapon of “printing money” in a last-ditch drive to combat the rapidly deepening recession.”

UK SCHOOL CANCELS CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION FOR MUSLIM HOLIDAY. “”A primary school has cancelled its Christmas nativity in favour of Muslim festival of Eid celebrations because it would be too much for the children to do both.”
The rationale doesn’t make sense. Why didn’t they cancel all celebrations altogether?
