Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If all the loans that Northern Rock has originated and then repackaged, securitised and shoved off the balance sheet and into the Granite SIV are brought back onto the balance sheet, what would be NR's loans-to-reserves ratio?

I bet it would be less than 1%.
