Santander to float Bradford & Bingley?

It is just a bit over one year that the shareholders of B&B got expropriated by the British Government and saw control of the business handed over to Banco Santander shortly afterwards. So it may ruffle a few feathers among the investor community if there is talk that Banco Santander may float a stake in B&B or some other holdings in the UK on the public markets here. While Santander appears to be the laughing third party in this sorry affair one would hope that the effort of the previous owners of B&B to get satisfaction in the courts gets a boost from this slap in their face. After all, the situation at B&B cannot have been all that bad. Forensic accountants to the fore! And what about all that talk about 'Human Rights'?
