According to the Jeremy Vine show which was debating the subject of honours being rescinded, there is a committee that sits (forget the name of it now) to decide if the honour should be taken back. Only the PM can call this meeting, so Dave did have an input. Sorry about that MG Maniac.edited for bad England innit!Sh1t shot, pumping slop.

Fair comment! and did hear on an "Independant" radio station (other radio stations are available) that DC had been making noises about de-frocking "Fred" so perhaps it was a direction from HMG but that could have been on the back of pressure from the regulatory body.Smother me in chocolate and throw me to the lesbians!

It's brilliant he has now joined the rogues gallery along with the likes of Blunt and Piggott, I love it and by all accounts being de- sir'd will cut him deeply but he will no doubt survive on his RBS pension of £342,500 a year along with the tax free lump sum when he left the bank of 2.7 million, Iíll bet he invested that wisely.In Vino Veritas

- Fighting the Queens enemies and answering emails. To be honest it is mostly answering emails.
I think it is wonderful that we have sent a signal out to the world of business that if you broken no law but we think you are a bit shifty we will hound you. Why look at the stock market with RBS loosing £900,000,000 in share value as it seems that working hard at a job and on a contract agreed on before is not what people want. They want their pound of flesh and so we heckle a man to not take what he has worked for and to strip the gongs of a man not convicted of any crime while Labour Peers who committed fraud of our tax money and did time inside are fine to parade themselves as Lords (and getting a prison sentence is very hard to achieve - look at those men who battered a man nearly to death yet walk out of court and not to jail even though they were found guilty).
Strange old world of jealousy and envy.Chief, how do I range up/down again?????

The 50-50-90 rule: Any time there is a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90 percent probability it will turn out wrong.
If in doubt blame the Loggies. It is normally their fault.

Completely agree Guns - I think Goodwin has been made a scapegoat for the whole thing. The Government went for it because mob rule (ie the tabloids) demanded it and Labour wanted it because it distracts that it was their poor regulation of the industry and ridiculous fiscal management that got us here in the first place!Opinions stated are those of a Service Medical Officer acting in good faith and a personal capacity.
Opinions stated are not necessarily those of the Royal Navy or HM Government.

It's about time these legends in their own minds top bankers were brought to heel, for too long successive governments have been running scared of them and I take a great deal of pride in being one of the lynch mob.
It's nothing to do with jealousy or envy, it's about seeing a man who took reckless risks with other peoples money being brought down a peg.In Vino Veritas
