    So just for once, jam today, not tomorrow.

    'You couldn't have it if you DID want it,' the Queen said. 'The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday - but never jam to-day.'

    'It MUST come sometimes to "jam to-day,"' Alice objected.

    'No, it can't,' said the Queen. 'It's jam every OTHER day: to-day isn't any OTHER day, you know.'

    'I don't understand you,' said Alice. 'It's dreadfully confusing!'

    The bank offering the top 18-month and three-year fixed savings deals has today stopped accepting online applications for the products due to "unprecedented demand" – and from tomorrow both rates will be slashed.

    In other words they hit their target and obtained the media coverage to promote the bank...........

    Its the norm for market leading fixes to get withdrawn quickly once they have got the funds they intended to raise, these ones from Metro Bank were about longer than many - have seen some being withdrawn the same day!

    As of now the Shawbrook offering still stands: http://moneyfacts.co.uk/savings/fixed-rate-bonds/
    Never let the perfume of the premium overpower the odour of the risk
