For those at the mercy of the European Commission, they now all lurch sickeningly downward.On October 28th the commission approved plans to split Northern Rock, which was nationalised by the British government last year, into two. The bigger surprise came two days earlier when ING, the biggest bank in the Netherlands, said that it would dismember itself—splitting its banking and insurance businesses and selling its American online-banking arm&
