Northern Rock sale?

Will the troubled mortgage lender Northern Rock be sold soon?

O lords of the big money, show us the future, let us see into the heart of finance, and we will forever be in your debt (although not in debt.) I will cast the rune stones, yes I will, I will read the tarot cards (who wouldn't?) I will climb the mountain (best thing to do in the circumstances.)

O holy gods of the burning cash, speak to us of Northern Rock. Show us a sign. Will it be sold? Will it be broken up? Will it be wound up? Are our savings secure? O you remote gods, your silence is agony. Help us. Save us. Give us a sign.

Do not condemn Northern Rock to the abyss.
