I have a lot of share that are worth nothing now, and it was seen as a great investment only a few years ago. I am now likely to lose my home, and go bankrupt and I off set my morgage with all Nothern Rock shares. At least that way the goverment will have the debt back on their books. There will be other share holders in the same place as me.
