Bankingballs - Financing the ugly sisters

Good to see that the state owned banking sector is not averse to a bit of historical airbrushing.

The latest issue of RAIL carries an ad celebrating the "solutions and expertise offered by Lloyds TSB Corporate Markets" in helping finance 20 Class 70 locos for Freightliner.

But what's this?

Eye's man in the red braces sneers:

The GE/Freightliner deal was done by HBOS and by people who left HBOS before Lloyds took over."

Please remember the value of your marketing can go down as well as up.
