Northern Rock? Failed? Well we knew that..

.. but!

OK, we all know Northern Rock have already failed quite spectacularly, largely due to the BBC's social experimentation (don't get me started), however, our mortgage in the UK is with them - and I called to get a statement of mortgage interest, for my Jersey tax return.

The first one didn't arrive - I blame Royal Mail for this. Fair enough. Used to that.

The second one did. It says:

"I confirm that the gross amount of interest charged to your mortgage loan from 1 Jan 2008 to 31 December 2008."

You'll probably read that once and go 'Yep - fine.' - read it again.

It seems to be missing one piece of information. Yup. The amount!


Third time lucky?
