Most here are used to your regular bouts of spleen-venting Finks; but shirly there were enough visuals from Monty to put anyone off their second helpings of spleen for today TYVM!
Sentiments agreed, but the trouble is that your line-up is inboard again, into RR; rather than being more usefully directed towards those elsewhere who might (?) even be able to arrange a remedy other than the lone cyber straitjacket available to us poor plebs at RR.
Instead perhaps you could try bleating angrily to your MP/Laird of the Manor/Clan Chieftain/Lord High Provost/favorite minor Royal or even to the Scottish Daily ........ (insert rag of choice) comments pages?
.....Unless this just your first public post-hibernation flash-up of the year for the hielan' ootrage oomnibus, in which case I've well & truly bitten...

Out of interest Finks, what's your standpoint on the capping of benefits, does that represent a 'disgraceful failure of leadership'? Just wonderingGive a man a fish and he'll feed his family for a day,
teach a man to fish and he'll sit round on a boat all day drinking beer.

Anyway I'm loving RBS. I bought shares at 20p and am very happy with their current 27p.
The idea anyone actually capable of doing the job would for a lesser sum is laughable. It is one of the highest profile jobs in British, and indeed worldwide, finance, and thus will attract loads of negative press regardless. Some of the senior managers at RBS are earning more so they'd hardly be lining up to replace him.
Oh and RBS announced a £2bn profit this year. So it is hardly a reward for failure.
And since when did fink care about bankers being made unemployed?

My understanding on this is that he was employed as it was thought that he was the best person to turn round RBS performance. Who decided that he was the best man ? If we as the taxpayers are the majority shareholder, why did 'we' agree to his terms of employment ? If it was the, then, Board of Directors who chose him, considering their record as to previous choices, they were not quite the right people to decide. Agreeing a bonus package before performance is proven is, to me, unacceptable. Any man worthy of his hire does his job and is very well paid for it. The excuse that if you didn't pay these grossly high wages no-one would get the best men is a load of crap, thought of by those who make sure that these priviledged jobs are kept for the 'boys'.
Rant over......I know what I mean anyway!

It just so happens that I have a great deal of empathy for those who lose their jobs due to the incompetence of those above them.

Don't let the buggers grind you down finknottle, wherever there is a trough you will always find truffle hunters to get their snouts in it.
