I Blame Robert Peston

I don't normally do this, and the fact that I was sitting in the pub half way through my second pint of Guinness when it occurred to me might well have something to do with it BUT:

how come a couple of years ago when Farepak Hampers collapsed leaving a few thousand people short what amounts to the sort of money the government loses down the back of the settee, although it was a terrible shame an' all that, nothing (bar a bit of handwringing) could be done about it? Yet now - all of a sudden - if you're unfortunate enough to have had over £50,000 in savings in a collapsed Icelandic bank well, not to worry, we'll bail you out ...
Is it me? Is it the Guinness?
