Things are moving so fast in the UK now I don't think even I can keep up with it. I found this interesting web site at The Guardian that is updating the news in realtime so rather than re-write all this coming out, I'm just going to direct you to this amazing URL directly:

Note: The Bank of England is Rothschild . It is, like the Federal Reserve (co-owned by blood-line families along with the Rothschilds) , anything but Government owned, despite its official sounding name. All central banks are Rothschild owned but 2 (I believe Russia and China). The BIS is also a Rothschild enterprise.
