Would you buy shares in a Lloyds Bank sell off?MoneySaving Poll Results

The Tories say they plan to let the public buy up to 10,000 shares each in Lloyds Bank at a 5% discount (paid for by the tax payer) to the share price plus 10% extra shares if you hold them for a year. Labour & Lib Dems have pooh-poohed the idea.

If it happens would you apply? Which of these is closest to your answer?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
