Are you ever confused which way is Mecca?

I agree with the first paragraph, lending money at high interest rates should be a criminal offence. some of these loan companies on TV are to me preying on the already hard up section of the population.

I haven't been to a Mecca Ballroom for years, are they still in existence? They were a fantastic place to meet girls in the 60s.

" lending money at high interest rates should be a criminal offence."

Depends on what you define as "high". One person's high is another person's competitive.

Spain is currently borrowing at a prohibitive 7.6&+, very high compared with some other countries.

Make it illegal and where are they going to go?

Make it illegal for the domestic consumer and we know where they are going to go, straight into the clutches of the already illegal, unregulated, loan sharks.

A borrowing rat of a prohibitive 7.6% is positively low compared to a borrowing rate of 4,200%!

Exactly.

It depends on who is defining "high"!

4,200 % is also positively low compared with 719,000%.

Well, it makes a change from a free pen! Besides which, it's actually not a bad idea - every Muslim I know carries a small compass so that they can orientate on Mecca when they're travelling and need to pray. If they also carry a cc, it would save them having to rummage around for the compass each time, as they have to do now
