Some of today's most interesting links...

...In my opinion, anyway.

The News of the World on loan sharks (29.9% APR plus extras)

Polly Toynbee wrote about rent-to-buy stores in Hard Work (which is a surprisingly good book) in 2003 and it seems nothing much has changed since.

John Redwood's interesting ripost to the Government's "bad bank" idea

I think he writes his own blog. You can read about the Government's proposals here.

And some of today's least interesting links.

Timesonline presents latest in its series: "Social stereotypes that only apply to ten upper middle- class people living in Maida Vale"

Because there are many people living in Grimsby who will be nodding their heads this morning with recognition upon reading:
