The Royal Bank of Scotland  is proposing to pay almost £1 billion in bonuses to its staff. That is the same RBS resused by a £20 billion taxpayer bail-out.

Says Chancellor Alistair Darling:

“We cannot return to business as usual. It is in everyone’s interest to get banks’ governance right. It would be wrong to reward people whose excessive risk-taking brought the banks down, causing misery to millions of their customers. Success should be rewarded. Failure should not.”

So why are they getting a bonus?

A billion poundes. Oh, and that’s a drop of 60 per cent on the previous year! Bankers got around £1.6 billion in extras the year before it went tits up.

Trebles all round.

Rumours are that no RBS winner will get more than £25,000 cash, topping up with RBS shares – shares in your bank!

Did you get shares?
