The housing market in London is showing signs of cooling as the gap widens between asking prices and the amount buyers are prepared to pay. Figures from property analysts show just 11% of London postcodes recorded increases in values in August, compared with 19% of areas outside the capital. The typical time it takes to sell a London property has almost doubled since February, from just over two and-a-half weeks to nearly five weeks.

– HSBC statement
We do not discuss relationships we may or may not have with a customer, nor confirm whether an individual or business is, or has been a customer.
In general terms, decisions to end a customer relationship are not taken lightly, but are absolutely not based on the race or religion of a customer.
Discrimination against customers on grounds of race or religion is immoral, unacceptable and illegal, and HSBC has comprehensive rules and policies in place to ensure race or religion are never factors in the decisions we make.
– Mohammed Kozbar, Mosque chairman
It is shocking, unbelievable. To send us a letter without any notice. We don't understand why they have taken this action and we are not going to be quiet. It is disgraceful. As a community organisation we are doing a good job between the communities. We have worked hard since we took over from Abu Hamza. We have changed the mosque from an atmosphere of hostility to a cohesive atmosphere. The most is open to everybody. We don't receive money from abroad, we don't send any money abroad. Our reputation and credibility is on the line now.
