RBS board may quit if £1.5bn bonus plan is vetoed
Well, Alistair? Are you a man or a mouse? This is your chance to demonstrate that the government will not always lie down and beg in front of the bankers. OK, the RBS board might resign but I doubt it. And even if they did, it's not as though they could not be replaced.
In any case, we taxpayers are about to own 84% of RBS. Might as well go the whole hog and natinalise the whole shebang.
