WTF is the point in even trying with these pr*cks
Had almost the same problem with my mortgage (Halifax) and mobile (orange) when I was redundant in 2004, however it was longer and so costlier.

Mine has just pointed out that I haven't paid much in recently so have asked I pay at 768 in the next couple of weeks or if i can't afford that they'll remove my overdraft facility and demand 2200 back in one go!!! This is due to their "policy of being a responsible lender" !!?

How does that work then exactly? Can't afford to pay in much so we'll ask you to pay in more, and even more if you can't afford the first amount!?
