While this report attempts to connect two dots in the headline, it proves to be somewhat of a bait-and-switch, with little proof of a UK home market recovery.

The sale includes 600m euros ($845m) of five- year notes that will yield about 125 basis points more than benchmark rates, said Sara Evans, a London-based spokeswoman at Lloyds. That compares with 170 basis points the bank paid on similar notes issued in September, according to data compiled by Bloomberg."
