Lloyds TSB in merger talks with the Halifax

I bought a modest number of shares in HBOS early on this morning, just out of sheer bloody-mindedness. It's not going to go anywhere, (except perhaps ***BREAKING NEWS*** by way of a merger with LloydsTSB!) and I suspect a lot of the trading is caused by some smart-alecs trying to make a killing.

Mind you, it would be nice if, when they need to put a spokesperson up for the telly in dire times, HBOS put up someone who looks like they might be able to knock the skin off a rice pudding, if push came to shove.
