    I reckon quite a few people will transit to these accounts from their existing providers, despite the total amount of interest payable not being enough for a holiday to Cortina.

    £250 p.m. is not exactly supercharged. But it's better than a slap in the face with a wet Allegro.

    Despite the conditions it's still an Edsellent rate of interest.

    With that sort of rate you would be able to afford nice stuff like Lamb Or Gin I would have thought.

    I think the money will be held in the tax-free haven of Grenada.

    They will give you a free Pinto if you stop there in Transit.

    I think everyone just needs to wait until Mondeo to find out more details.

    Will they have a branch in Dagenham?
