    Govt scraps secondary annuity market plan.

    No surprise there. Commercially, it would be unattractive and those that would be expected to transact in that area were all concerned over the viability. Indeed, many had said they intended to avoid the area altogether.

    Politically expedient given the changes in government and ministerial shuffle as well.

    Practically speaking it was an utter nightmare and makes it plain what an idjut Osborne was to have come up with this cockamamie scheme.
