Just thought I would include this from the 9th of Jan 2011:So, telec, RBS have, as yet, to return a profit, it was looking good for 2010, but got shafted by the Irish financial situation. No profit means no payback to those that bailed them out in the first place, as I said 85% of nothing is nothing.
RBS chief Stephen Hester awarded a £2.5m bonus.
Stephen Hester, the chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland, is to be paid almost £7 million just two-and-a-half years after the state-controlled bank was bailed out by taxpayers.
So if RBS haven't returned a profit,who the **** is paying the bonus?
