Alliance & Leicester Customers...

If you have an account with Alliance & Leicester it might be time to start looking around at other accounts and possibilities.

Santander, the company that own the Abbey National, have made a takeover approach for the A+L. From my experience with the Abbey since Santander took over the service, reliability and operation of the bank has gotten to an all time low over the course of my time with them (18 years). If Santander bring the same skills and mindset to A+L if they manage the takeover then the only winners will be competitor banks you can move your business to.

I very intrigued to know how a Spanish company is able to use its financial expertise to be able to buy Abbey National and now make a bid for Alliance & Leicester. Moreso when I thought that the UK's speciality was in the financial sector.

Its even more surprising when you discover that the half-rate Spanish telecoms company Telefonica have owned O2 (yes the mobile phone network) for several years now. Even moreso when you realise what a poor service that Telefonica offer its customers.

When did Spain become a global economic power? (And its nothing to do with winning a Euro Cup Final!)
