Lloyds TSB HBOS has seen its profits drop by three quarters

Mustard Seed Shavings 8.02 a.m. news headlines:

Amazingly, Lloyds TSB HBOS reports a massive profit

They've had my money for 36 years now (although for some of that time it was more that I had theirs). We've never really been what you'd call friends.

Just so you know.

Hey Ho, sloppy journalism from the BBC. 5live was reporting in the same way. Lloyds TSB saw its profits reduce somewhat, HBOS reported a massive loss.

However, even worse than any of that was that we had to listen, yet again, to Robert Peston commenting on it all.
