What are your thoughts on the British banking system.
I have a corporate client with a sizeable bank balance. Should I be recommending that they open a deposit account with a different bank? At the moment, if their current bank has a wobble then they are 100% stuffed. But if we deal with 2 banks then that doubles the exposure to risk (although it would not then be a total disaster).

Do you think things are that bad??

Who knows? They are talking in terms of comparing it to 1929. One of the British banks lost 30% of its share value at one stage today!
