Re: Resolved? I think not.
""RBS ... Is that not the bank that is deliberately bankrupting its own customers and buying their assets on the cheap from the receivers?"
"That is under investigation and very much not proven. "
Not proven to you perhaps. But I worked for a listed tech company that was put through the mangler by RBS GRG a few years ago, before the credit crunch. It was in difficulties and needed refinancing certainly, but RBS chose to squeeze the trigger, and take control. In rough terms the company had £150m of debt, and an equity value of perhaps £20-70m. By forcing it into administration RBS were able to sell it in a suspect pre-arranged transaction for over £200m. Even over above outrageous "professional advisor" fees from a couple of the big four accunting (sic) firms that I recall totalled about £13m, and £2m of "fees" to a board of RBS placemen for a few months work, RBS made around £40m of profit at the expense of the shareholders and unsecured creditors who got nothing. Other delicious ironies included the appointment of a certain dodgy US investment bank to "sell" the company out of administration, the same bank that had previously been the bookrunner for a bond sale that raised £40m or so from bondholders who saw their cash evaporated.
All of this has been raised with the chairman of RBS himself ("no, no, wasn't us, you don't understand, maybe sailing close to the wind, that's how capitalism works etc etc"). It has been reported to the City of London Police, to the FSA/FCA (who did nothing), and over two years ago was raised with those useless cretins Cable, Osborne and also the Labour party's various spokesmen. Cable says he hadn't heard anything other than rumours before the Tomlinson report, but Cable is a liar - I have copies of the emails sent to him in my inbox, because I know the complainant.
Also, you may wish to pay attention to the ad hominem defence that RBS and the government are running. Note the freshly started attempts to discredit Lawrence Tomlinson (eg I understand that there will be an FT article attacking him today - pink paper, not going to offend the banks, is it?). And Cable (fat, useless, old, and evidently working for the 1%) is also distancing himself from Tomlinson.
You can choose to believe that RBS didn't do this. But the f***ers have been caught with their hand in the till so many times I wonder why anybody in their right mind would not start from a presumption of guilt.
