Today I signed a letter, along with other G20 leaders, calling on countries to face up to their debts and deal with them. Every country in the world has to do that so we can get growth going again.

- David, I've just received a letter from HSBC stating they are now going to charge £66 a year for having an online business banking account with them. Considering they pay no interest on the money in the account and no doubt make a nice little profit from it, I now feel I am receiving negative interest rates on my business account.
This lack of interest in rewarding savers is all down to the BoE issuing out oodles of free cash to the banks. The banks have no motivation to attract savers when they are breast feeding off the BoE. QE and government lending funds have completely distorted the market for cash.
Quite how a yearly charge for running the simplest of business accounts is going to encourage others to start their own business is a mystery. The banks control this country more than they did in 2008. They need dismantling otherwise they'll be too powerful even for Parliament.Jun 29, 2013

It is stupid and ridiculous that we are spending money on rocket building, it is actually down right insulting to us when we are in dire straights with the economy that we aid such a thing especially when we don't even have a rocket! or a space agency, however don't vote in Labour because they will be worse, they are only getting popularity from the mistakes of the Prime Minister and then the Labour Party looks like a more sound choice in the next elections when in reality they wont be, is a absolute fool with no real substance and definitely does not have an idea about how to run a Country, Ed Balls is well his name says it all and do we really need another Gordon Brown cabinet in power? No we don't, just stick to the Tory Party because at some point someone with substance will come out of that Party and my bet is on William Hague, he seems like he would do better in the head seat, he is more driven, determined and he isn't afraid to voice his opinion and he must be good if Cameron nearly had a heart attack when Hague threatened to resign. If Cameron doesn't improve then vote Hague all the waySep 4, 2013
