The Sad Demise of Bradford and Bingley!

September 30, 2008 at 10:06 am 1 comment

One of the saddest side-effects of the whole credit crunch thing is the likely loss of the easy-on-the-eye star of the rather poignantly named “Hopes and Dreams”advert for Bradford and Bingley, which will no doubt be lost as a brand as it is swallowed up by the Abbey and Santander.

There is clearly no justice in this world as the Halifax brand is likely to be saved following their takeover by Lloyds TSB. Which means more of those rather irritating adverts featuring Howard.

We can only hope that the Scottish Widows are safe! Fingers crossed.
