When will the UK banking bailout be over?

The revelation that between Lloyds bank and Royal Bank of Scotland, an additional £50 billion has this week been invested on behalf of taxpayers has caught many by surprise. The ongoing UK banking bailout seems never-ending and despite the fact that the government would like taxpayers to believe this is an attractive investment in the medium to longer term, doubts are starting to grow.

If the likes of Lloyds bank and Royal Bank of Scotland need these tens of billions of pounds between them to keep trading at this moment in time, are there issues under the surface which we should be aware of?

The more money that is pumped into the UK banking system the more concerned taxpayers become and the greater the risk to taxpayer's money. When you also consider that these operations will be either split up or watered down in the short to medium term you begin to wonder how investors will receive a return and when this will happen. As we approach the next general election, further taxpayer investment in the UK banking system is the one thing which Gordon Brown would like to avoid but the one thing which seems to follow him wherever he goes.
