To date RBS has made a loss of £58 billion since the taxpayer bailed RBS out in 2009 to the tune of £45 billion. The obscene salaries and bonus's continue to be paid to attract the "cream of the industry". Fred the Shred who oversaw the debacle in his 4 years as CEO continues to collect his £750,000 a year pension from RBS and the bank on an almost bimonthly basis continues to be in court over illegal practices. No one gets sacked but leave with heavily plated platinum goodbyes and no one goes to jail. It is government policy to sell off, well at least the "profitable" parts of RBS as soon as possible. This should not happen until at least £103 billion has been recovered to the tax payer. Given the farce that selling off Royal Mail was the government would do well to shelve any sell off ideas of RBS, stop all bonus's rewarding failure, sack incompetence and get it sorted.
