"In it's sixth Sepa progress report, the ECB welcomes the effort made so far, but stresses that work 'urgently remains to be done' to ensure the success of the Europe-wide project."

You don't say?  Is anyone surprised?  Talk about stating the obvious...

With banks being bailed out and IT budgets across the board slashed beyond recognition, why would anybody expect financial institutions to pull out all the stops and invest in a scheme that does them no good whatsoever. How exactly is SEPA going to help their bottom line?

They hardly going to go the whole hog and put cold cash into ensuring the project's success, now are they?
