The home of former bank boss Sir Fred Goodwin has been attacked by vandals.
Windows were smashed at the villa and a car parked in the driveway was also damaged.
Sir Fred, ex-chief executive of Royal Bank Of Scotland (RBS), was criticised after he was given a pension worth £700,000 a year, despite the bank being bailed-out by the Government.
The windows of a Mercedes were smashed in the attack early this morning in Edinburgh

I would urge all concerned, to consider the families, and only go after the real criminals here, after all that is what our Police Forces are for !

Like it matters anyway, small repairs to those bankers.
they wont even blink at this, all they will do isup their security a lil more.
But I like the gesture of the people who did it to let them know that they arent hard to find.

Was this the incident organized by Acorn?
I believe Acorn was arranging the bus tours of Bankers executive family homes. Sounds like Acorn. The Obama administration (Geitner) directed Reed to add the loophole in the Bailout bill that allowed bonuses. Then Obama himself pretended to be angry about the bonuses. However he himself received $101,000 in campaign contributions from AIG.

As crazy or unlikely as it may seem, Britain has its own banking crisis. Whatever you think of Obama or Acorn, it's pretty doubtful that Acorn is organising vandalism attacks in Edinburgh (that's in Scotland).
Or perhaps you don't think there's any Scottish people angry enough to do this? That it perhaps takes American backing for someone to kick-off like this?
