Oggy,
I dumped mine with a heavy heart on the news yesterday there'll be no income payments this year. http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exch ... 27103.html
@8% they were good and still might recover or rescued like my Co-op 11% 2023 sub notes which I'm happy with.
If they go much lower, I will buy back in.
Rds.

good luck to both of you with these.. not really clued up re. PIBS, but i'd have thought MBS being absorbed into another society is fairly likely :think:
