    RBS reports a 1.4billion loss !

    Post by papa_umau on Sat 06 Aug 2011, 11:55 am

    I would hope that the new CEO of the RBS, Stephen Hester - who earns 1.2 Million in wages, plus a 10 Million shares package in order to sort out the bank,( which is 84 percent owned by you and me ), will get no bonuses this year after the bank admitted losses of 1.4 BILLION and the share value of RBS had dropped by 30 BILLION in the first few months of the year.

    Surely if any bonuses are to come his way they should be delivered once he has got the bank back into the black and the British taxpayer owners could eventually expect some of their money back too.

    Mind you, there seems to be no rhyme-or-reason to why or how these fat-cats get their bonuses.

    You said it Papa. "No rhyme or reason" is the exact phrase that I would use too.

    If this fat pig does not get a whacking-big bonus at the end of the financial year I for one will be surprised.

    They seem to live within a whole set of rules that apply to nobody else.

    And have you heard the latest ?

    They are planning at RBS to charge their customers for taking money out of any other bank's autoteller machines.

    This could start a run on charging everybody all over again.

    Yes moi dear, they tried this one on a few years ago and nobody would take any money from the charging machines. They very soon changed their ideas and made all withdrawals from bank and affiliated machines free.

    It didn't work then and it won't work now !

    Don't "moi dear" me my man ! Evil or Very Mad

    But yes, you are right that the last time the major banks tried to charge for withdrawals at cash machines the people voted with their feet and they, the banks, quickly changed their minds.

    "Power to the people" I say.

    Not going to argue with that one Angie !

    I only wish that "the people" would stick together more often as when they do they give the strongest and most abusive corporations and governments big frights.

    Right there, we are on the same page as I said something similar over on the Rip-Off forum already today.

    Sometimes I wonder if you are not a long lost uncle or older brother of mine as we very often think alike.
