Holy Moses, The Archbishop is a Banker

That supposes the next thing to hit the headlines will be, the Pope is an estate agent in London, OK, the Vatican.
Believe me mate, that's not a fib, the first part that is, Archbishop Justin Welby, who recently sat on the Parliamentary Banking Standards Commission, is one of the Church Commissioners charged with directing the investment fund. We don't know what his opinion was in Parliament, but now The Church Commissioners, which manages a £5.5bn investment portfolio, has joined a consortium lined up by Lord Davies, the former Labour minister and boss of Standard Chartered, which is vying with two other rivals to buy the branches.
We have to add, the Archbishop of Canterbury made it clear, he was not involved in the decision to bid for the RBS branches which has been planned over many months.

THIS SITE IS FOR ESTATE AGENTS IN LONDON, WE DON'T DO RELIGION

We do not preach religion from this platform, yet we have to ask, is the Church of England suddenly supportive of Bank Antics? Why otherwise would the “poor” Church dabble in a deal worth Five and a Half Billion Pounds for buying into the Banking Sector through the purchase of 315 branches of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), no less.
RBS was ordered to sell the portfolio of branches in 2009 (No buyers yet) by European competition authorities after the bank received £45.5bn in state aid ( - - - where have all the money gone, gone to churches - - we may suppose). We have to admit, the Bishop Welby (WellBe?) certainly has an eye for a bargain.
Just maybe, when The Church turns a handsome (Bank) profit, They may pay some attention to the next part of the Article which Does touch on the property market and the estate agents in Shoreditch to the estate agents in Islington

A SHARP FALL IN HOUSEHOLD DISPOSABLE INCOME HITS 25-YEAR HIGH

Plus a drop in savings in the first three months has overshadowed revised official figures showing Britain's “double-dip” recession never happened. (2 minus 1 can still make 3)
The official data raised fears that the squeeze on households has intensified with more people having to dip into savings to make ends meet. Real household disposable income fell 1.7pc, representing the biggest drop in 25 years.
"The revised figures shown still prove decline, including GDP now being nearly 4pc below its pre-crisis peak," said Victoria Clarke at Investec. "Household disposable income having had its biggest drop since 1987, alongside a fairly hefty drop in savings ratio [to 4.2pc in Q1 2013 from 5.9pc in the previous quarter]."
This will require even more dedication from estate agents in London, including Nelsons' estate agents, to find suitable solutions for clients looking for properties.

LONDON HAS HIGHEST RATES OF POVERTY AND INEQUALITY IN UK

Some time ago the Gaurdian reported that London has the highest rates of poverty and inequality of any region in the country and the scale of the problem has in some respects been "getting worse" over the past decade.                                                                                                                                           We suggest the Archbishop puts that on his holy communion and eats it.
An independent report presenting a detailed picture of patterns across the capital shows that a higher proportion of people of all ages live below the poverty line in London than in other regions, with child poverty overall remaining unchanged since the late 1990s and actually rising in households where at least one adult is working.
One part of the same report tends to offer some solace to the Nelsons estate agents in London:  The capital, seen as the engine of the UK economy, has more people with an income in the Top 10% as well as in the bottom 10%, than anywhere else in the country. There is some hope, still.
