Customers queue outside a branch of British mortgage lender Northern Rock, north London, September 18, 2007. An unequivocal commitment from authorities to guarantee everybody's savings appears to be the only way to stop a run in its tracks and save a bank from going under, say analysts. Just such a promise from the British government on Monday may finally have turned the tide in favour of lender Northern Rock after a full-scale run started on Friday.
