    RBS Boss complains about no big bonuses.

    RBS boss sparks fury by complaining that he's banned from paying out massive bonuses to fat cat staff

    ROSS McEwan's gripe follows the bank showing higher profits - at the cost of 6300 jobs.

    He was speaking as 81 per cent taxpayer-owned RBS revealed pre-tax profits of 1.6billion for the three months to the end of March almost double the profit recorded in the same quarter in 2013.

    But MSPs were horrified by his reaction when his plans to pay bonuses twice the size of annual salaries were blocked.




    What do you guys think of this ?

    Do you agree that the fat-cats SHOULD get 200 percent bonuses when the profits recorded were as a result of the sacking of 6,300 ordinary staff ?

    Pure and unadulterated greed, that is what it is ! Mad

    Why they are not happy with a one hundred percent bonus I fail to understand.

    "Hell mend the lot of em" I say, as if a one hundred percent bonus is not big enough for them, let them go elsewhere for the big bucks.

    What is desperately needed here is that the bonus competition merry-go-round that keeps these fat-cat pigs in clover, ( sorry for the mixed metaphore Embarassed ), needs to be broken so that they only receive what they have earned, like the rest of us have to.

    My heart bleeds for him as much as it did for the woman who couldn't afford to eat out in 120k.

    I guess it is all about what we - and they - consider to be "normal" life.

    If struggling on 120k up to an infinity of riches is not enough then these people need to walk a mile in the shoes of the old and the poor and the disabled people; as if they did they would value what they have much better than they do and they would not terrorise these weakened levels of society so hard or so often.
