    I wonder if the RPI will go negative for March, and if so, how they'll calculate interest an N.I. and student loans, etc.

    Its funny because people have been suggesting that the RPI includes things designed to lower the rate, to make it appear that the former chancellor was on track, even thou it was higher........

    0% on the student loan would be nice! I might actually pay it off by the time I get to 50! (I graduated 6 years ago and I've barely made a dent so far)

    Haha negative student loan ftw! It probably will stop at 0% unless they have any clauses, the Banks rate cuts is what is currently driving down the student loan on an 'emergency' basis.

    The only problem is that I only have a 5% account to put it in atm.

    Hoorah for the Kaupthing fixes of 7.15%, its a shame I only went for the 1 year
