Poll started 18 January 2011:

Are mortgages & credit too easily available or too hard to get?

We've had a credit crunch which means credit scoring's got tougher and mortgages, credit cards and loans are harder to get especially at cheap rates. Yet a chunk of the blame of the economic crisis that caused the crunch was over-lending to people who couldn't repay.

Which of these stark choices is closest to your view on the availability of credit?
