Pun-terest rates cut

The Bank of England has slashed interest rates by 1.5% in an attempt to stimulate the economy. However, some greedy mortgage lenders quickly pulled their tracker and variable rate deals, which could render the move pointless. The Sun and the Daily Mirror argue in no uncertain terms that, since we, as taxpayers, kind of have a stake in the banks since the government gave them a leg up with our cash, we should be able to force them to pass the savings on.

The Daily Mirror:

INTEREST RATS

The Sun:

NOW PASS IT ON, YOU BANKERS

The puns continue inside the Sun, with the newspaper identifying eight "piggy banks" that it says are "snout of order" for not cutting their variable rates.

My pun idea:

HEY BIG LENDERS, SPARE A LITTLE DIME FOR ME

Inspired, yes?!
