With all the confusion and the conflict between government and Bank of England, who exactly should a bank lend money to?

Right, lets get down to the old brass tacks. The banks have been loaned (not given) the money to lend.

These banks need to maker a profit. This means only lending to those certain to keep up the repayments (a new concept I know).

Who do they lend the money to make that profit? Let’s make a yes / no list and see.

YES
