Did Brown Create a False Market?

When Gordon Brown persuaded Lloyds to take on the wreck of HBOS, he put his "reputation" on the line.

This "reputation" was placed even more on the edge of the precipice, when it became apparent that HBOS was on the verge of collapse.

How surprising then, that at that very moment, the Bank of England bailed HBOS out with a secret (secret to the public and shareholders) loan.

The question is, did Brown create a false market in the shares in order to save his "reputation"?
