    Barclays in Brixton are complete Sh**, last time I managed to speak to a personal Banker was 7 months ago. They wont even give me a connect card, I'm stuck with a crappy Visa Electron I'm thinking of moving to a different bank.

    Added First Direct as an option. I know they are owned by HSBC but it is a different bank from a product point of view.

    I think I will change to co-operative when I get back.

    The Co-op bank? Good idea, that, think I'll check them out (for business account).

    Natwest here....got a few others, but Natwest have most of my dough...

    Rate them immensely highly...as with all things in Finance.....if you behave yourself then you get the respect and later the proper accounts...takes time tho.

    And I simply do not mind Banks making huge profits....it bothers me not one jot....its the PUBLIC doing the borrowing....they dont HAVE to keep moving house and buying more and more stuff.....

    More power to them..and hope they all keep a bit in reserve cos it'll al bite them on the bum soon.....it always does

    Nationwide, because:

    1. High rate of interest on current and savings accounts
    2. No shareholders, so more money goes to their customers
    3. Absolutely no charges when I use my card with foreign currencies. They even give you the market exchange rate. Great when buying things from other countries and when on holiday.
    4. No charge for things like going overdrawn


    I don't mind banks making lots of money, as long as it's not my money.

    I use the lloyds TSB gold service current account. Now I know my account is based in the middle of wales and I have to ring an 0845 number everytime I need them, but there are advisors there until 9 at night and my internet banking is fine as well

    lol I'd never thought I'd hear myself bigging up TSB but they've been great with my overdraft and also free insurance on myself and goods bought using my card
