Can anyone tell me what it means that Northern Rock will be bought into ‘public ownership’? Am I, as part of the public, an owner? Can I get dividend when the bank starts making money again? Can I  sell my shares, my part of the ownership?

What a misnomer; what a spin!

All it really means is that they will use my money to buy something I cannot use or enjoy. And some would claim that the capitalist democratic world is what we should impose on everyone.

God help them all.
