Banker’s Bonus? I cry foul.

I am stupefied to read about the obscene bonus (and salary) being paid to the RBS chief executive.  I don’t care if he single-handedly turned a dire situation into a better one (which, let’s face it, he didn’t), I don’t care if he can walk on water:  no-one deserves or could possible justify such astronomic sums in any economic climate let alone one where the bank has sacked dozens of front-line employees in order to cut costs.   I am even more angry that the UK Government – which  owns 80% of  RBS – seems to be unable or unwilling to stop this farce. 
Do they have no shame?  Is there nothing that can be done to change this avarice culture ?

  1. They are without shame and they are bloated with self-esteem.

    I agree. Rage doesn’t even begin to cover it.

    I absolutely agree with you.

    It seems to me ridiculous that the government doesn’t stop it, what are they thinking? They can’t possibly imagine that the tax payers will be happy with this, especially considering recent austerity measures.

    It is a sign that once in power, the government leans policies to the rich, the powerful and the influential.
