How much more of this are we going to take? The news that over 300 ‘top’ employees at RBS are to share £375 million in bonus payments stretches credulity well beyond breaking-point. This is a bank 84% owned by us, the taxpayer. This is a bank that made a loss last year! That is right. It made a loss. So why the bonuses? What sort of deal is it that rewards failure on such a scale? Who asked us if we wanted to pay these greedy bastards these ridiculous amounts?
As the government bangs on about cuts and with a budget on the way next week it is instructive to remember who funds the tories. Yes - it is the bankers and the city slickers.
It is astonishing that there has not as yet been direct action aimed at these greedy, rapacious, resource rapers. It is also astonishing the way the tories have deflected any interest in their funding arrangements. There is a direct correlation between the inadequate actions of the government and the banker’s contributions to the tories.
Stinky. Very stinky. Very stinky indeed.
