Government plans to nationalise bank accounts

Imagine you are a doting grandparent, and you drop a few hundred quid in a new savings account for grandson / granddaughter and heir, and then all concerned forget about it. Fast forward 15 years, and under proposals from that thing Ed Balls, the government will then be able to get its greasy mitts on it and blow spend it on "worthwhile reinvestment in youth services, financial inclusion and capability". While "balancing the financial interests of consumers". More here.

Supposedly it will be possible for consumers "to visit their bank or building society to reclaim which will repay them as now". The phrase 'getting vintage bordeaux out of a stone' springs to mind, especially if you have changed your name, for instance. What is more, the banks and so on are in cahoots with Balls on this one, which is beyond disgraceful.

Of all the absolutely filthy things this government has cooked up, this is perhaps the most stone cold Hall of Infamy candidate, and having shown the story to the generally mild-mannered Dizzy, he started SHOUTING IN ANGLO SAXON on MSN. And he is not given to doing that.

What's next? Shares? Houses? Cars? Stuff lying around the house that you can't be bothered to throw out / sell on ebay? Spare kidneys of non-drinkers?
