"82 percent owned by the UK government"

Which translates into, if anything like the US & have any gov employees, oops, oh well, carry on unless you committed a felony.

Because they are 82% owned by the UK government, perhaps? Trying to outdo healthcare.gov, those cheeky yank bastards?

Probably because they were already outsourced to India. Have you ever looked at the logistics of flying an angry mob halfway around the world? Visas, vaccinations, over-sized baggage fees for the pitchforks... by the time you've sorted all of that out you forget why you were angry in the first place.

I could see maybe picking one up once the price dips back under $200, don't know if that'll happen any time soon though. It's present growth isn't sustainable, but I don't know if that means the price will take a dive like I'd like it to any time in the near future.

I've done that too, easy peasy. I probably won't need to do that anymore, and it will get even easier to "cash out" if one so desires.

They are 82% government owned because when they crashed the government demanded shares in exchange for bailout. The plan is to sell the shares when the bank has recovered. Though if it keeps doing this it may never make it.
