Mega deals are back in vogue ... and so are the rows with British banks over mis-selling and Libor - part 2

I have a little update to my story last week on the ongoing row between Guardian Care Homes and Lloyds Banking Group. In case you don't recall, here is a link to last week's story:


Anyway, sources close to the situation have got in touch to argue it's "strange" that Lloyds  should think a settlement agreement will offer the taxpayer-backed bank protection in the courts.

This is because when Gary Hartland, the man who runs Guardian Care Homes, took action against Barclays in 2012 he had already signed an "agreement" with the bank, which was completely ignored by the courts, according to my sources.

In fact, the only outcome of that agreement was it led to a public apology by Barclays. Here is a link to a piece on that sorry affair:


A spokesperson for Lloyds said:

"As the matter is now subject to legal proceedings, it would be inappropriate to comment in any detail. However, having previously agreed a full and final settlement with the customer in 2011, we do not believe the matter has any merit and it will be vigorously contested."


  1. It's great post! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hello Everyone I am Daniel Steve from Texas, USA. I will like to share the goodness of God in my life after so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was been scammed so i became restless and desperate in getting a loan from a legit lender online. But as God would have it, i saw a comment from a friend called William Ken and he talked about this legit loan company where he got his loan fast and easy without any stress so he introduced me to a man called Mr Mason Diego who controls a firm called Diego Loan Company, So i applied for a loan sum of ($170,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved and deposited into my bank account in less than 48hrs, that was how i was able to get back on my feet to keep my broken business running and also to pay off my bills so i am advising everyone of you who is interested in getting a loan without collateral, no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans/ schedule, to please contact Mr Mason Diego. You can contact him through his email: diegoloancompany@yahoo.com
