Where have the billions of pounds of taxpayer's money gone to?

Despite a sustained effort to refloat the UK financial sector using taxpayers money, there has so far been little sign of a return to the UK population. The billions upon billions of pounds which have been ploughed back into share stakes in UK banks and the financial markets as a whole appear to have had little impact as yet. But where have the billions upon billions of pounds gone to?

The money which has been injected into the UK financial system has predominantly been used to shore up the assets of UK banks and allow them to lend money on the back of these. The increased liquidity in the money markets has assisted with the wholesale cost of debt in the UK but this has yet to feed through to the consumer market. Indeed the lack of liquidity in the business arena is still causing significant issues with liquidity and cash flow and companies will continue to go to the wall even when the UK recession has ended.

It is inconceivable to consider that the billions upon billions of pounds invested into the UK financial markets will not help the sector as a whole, but when taxpayers will see the benefit is very much open to debate.
