Barclays Muppets

Barclays bank are doing some really wanky TV ads at the moment for their "10% saving account". The URL they advertise is "" which says "Not Found. The requested object does not exist on this server. The link you followed is either outdated, inaccurate, or the server has been instructed not to let you have it." It's been like that for weeks (stick www. infront of their URL and it works, by the way). Muppets.

Oh, and their account is a bit of a stitch up too - you *have* to pay into it regularly from a Barclays current account, into which you have to pay £1000 per month or more via a salary mandate. In short, you have to have and use their current account as well. The savings account has limits on what you can deposit, and you're not allowed *any* withdrawals, otherwise you get absolutely no interest at all. Hardly seems worth it to me.. (but maybe that's just me).
