Too lazy to check if there is already a thread on this, but some background: BBC News - Libor scandal: RBS fines expected to total £400m "Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) is expected to be fined a total of about £400m ($625m) by UK and US regulators later as a result of the Libor scandal." What I would like to know is this. On aunty Beeb this morning, someone from a banking watchdog said that the fine would be paid by the bank from the bankers' bonus fund. A t'interweb search only reveals that bonuses CAN be in the millions, and something in the back of my mind says something along the lines of 25 people in London earned a bonus EACH of somewhere around £100m in 2011. How friggen big is that bonus fund?
