Taxpayers Face Years Of Debt

Taxpayers face years of debt in bank salvage deal

RBS Continues To Sponsor Formula 1

Gordon Rescues Hospitality Suites

If you had just made the biggest loss in UK Corporate History, the most immense financial screw up the country has ever known, would you advertise the fact?

Instead of changing its name, or simply finding a (black) hole to crawl into, RBS will continue to flaunt it around Monaco and Monza this year with the privileged and the pit-lane bimbos. All courtesy of the taxpayer.

A spokesman for RBS said: 'Cash strapped taxpayers may watch this season's races on a TV in a shop window, where the RBS logo will be very much in your face.'

IN A SHOP WINDOW??

If the RBS spokesman is really gloating that people will be homeless and have to watch TV in shop windows then he should be frogmarched to a nearby wood and shot.

Headline RBS SPOKESMAN GLOATS AT HOMELESSNESS?

Copydude, Link/Citation please. If this quote is genuine it is dynamite. It could destroy any remaining sympathy for bankers in this country.

That was a little bit of license.

It's still a bit in your face, though. At least Credit Suisse has had the humility to end its sponsorship of BMW F1.

I was beginning to suspect the quote wasn't genuine....

(Tweaks up irony detector a notch)

Perhaps the RBS F1 sponsorship needs to change to having the Labour logo's on the car.

Labour, because it's the right thing to do.

So when we are all homeless watching F1 in the shop window we can all still be brainwashed.

How about a Hammer and Sickle logo?

State sponsored motorsport.

Red Star Racing?

Taxpayers Commitment To F1 Safe

Oh my goodness, for a moment I was worried Link

Adam Parr, chief executive of the Williams Formula One racing team, insists that they are financially secure, despite RBS, one of their title sponsors, seeing their share price plummet by 70 per cent.

The bank, who are tied into a contract for the next two years with Williams, are to announce the biggest corporate loss in British history of £28billion.

However, with the FIA, motor sport's world governing body, implementing a range of cost-cutting measures in unison with the Formula One Teams' Association (FOTA), Parr still believes Williams' short-term prospects are strong.

"We are very grateful for the loyalty and steadiness of purpose of our partners," Parr said.

Um . . . er . . .

On the Telegraph page earlier today was a headline about "Anger growing at banks" and right next to it was a picture of Zara Philips wearing an RBS poloneck under the heading "Most influencial sportspeople" or something. Hard to say how deliberately mischievous that was.

Hard to say or not, this can't go down a storm with PR wonks.

I think it's a big problem for F1 this year, with banks being the most high profile sponsors. ING, Santander, RBS . . . it's all looking exactly what it always was. A crooks' circus.

Given Gordon's success in blaming it all on the banks, sports sponsorship could become very counter productive very soon. That includes Lloyds TSB's sponsorship of the maybe upcoming Olympics.

Anger at the banks . . . well, this could be fun in a sports sponsorship contest. Rotten eggs thrown at any competitor with a bank logo. Just like ancient Rome. Like it.

They're advertising all the time on German television. Some innane slogan like "Making It Happen", though I could be wrong, as I immediately switch off my attention when it comes on - and I can't remember what the advert is actually about. I would have thought that "RBS: Bringing Down the British Economy" would have been a better choice of slogan, guaranteed to win them loads of fans in Germany.

Please tell people not to fall for this, 'you need a new tv' or 'you need a new aerial' from salesmen when analogue is turned off. It depends on situation, signal strength, etc.

I've got a freeview box plugged in and get all the channels off the old analogue aerial. Admittedly channel 5 pixellates sometimes and the signal strength is about 40% on some channels but they all work.
