This is certainly a topic worth bringing to attention, but your fact's are off and you have no source...
here's the bbc article news.bbc.co.uk...
1 in 5 jobs from their "Group Manufacturing" division are to be shed, not
across the entire organisation, however most of these cut's are being made on top of the c. 2,700 losses already within the UK.
What I'd like to know is why did we bail this bank out if not to ensure they would begin loaning (hasn't happened) and secure the jobs of AT LEAST
those who work directly for the bank??
The Bank of Scotland and Royal Bank of Scotland should be nationalised for their failures (until the ideal of a resource based economy can be
realised, but IMO it would take a massive shift in attitudes and probably a major transitional disaster before that ever can materialise).
Fred Goodwin was an RBS exec who keeps his £700,000+ a year pension for life while they axe the people working for them without proper pensions.
This disgusts me. I'm not surprised "Sir" Fred's house was vandalised - I say BURN IT DOWN next time, preferably with him inside.
....oh and it was Bank of England execs who waved notes to the G20 crowds.
