    It'll not do anything pretty much.


    it's not a crack down so much as a reminder to lenders that they're meant to adhere to their lending criteria.


    As those Stoozing generally pay back their "debts" as the debt is literally on paper only, I doubt much will change at that end. Maybe A few companies will offer a bit less, but as this is the BoE telling lenders to manage their risk, culling risk-free custom is not what the response should be.

    By forcing lenders to hold more capital on their balance sheets. Then lenders will need to earn more money on the money they lend out. By one method or another. The net effect will be to tighten the screw a little.
