Barclays Business Savings rates!

We've recently opened a Business Savings account with Barclays. Today we received a nice letter from them telling us about the fantastic feature they offer: a tiered savings rate that pays a larger percentage if we have more money in the account.

Sadly, it appears that we need to deposit £1million before our rate will rise from the current 0.05% to the impressive 0.15%!

Sad to see a so-called "left wing" government presiding over the death of another public service that the UK used to be so proud of.
