Santander Makes Bid For Rbs Branches

Recommended Posts

Couldn't think of anything profound for post 3000. So here's news that Santander wants another 318 branches. Time to learn spanish?

Time to check the FSCS small print and the address of Los FSCSos office in Madrid.

Spanish bank Santander has submitted an offer to buy Royal Bank of Scotland's (RBS) Williams & Glyn's subsidiary.

Very rude to use your 3000th post to start a topic that RB had started an hour later.

It seems RB is intent on doing the 'right thing' to be top poster. Spending a while on yahoo's finance pages and sticking them all on here is all it takes it seems.

Recently opening a cash ISA with Santander (Base + 2.7% til April 2011), this move caught my attention.

One wonders how they can make a decent bid when it is said they are the only intrested bidder. Surely they can put in any derisory offer and It is bound to be accepted to avoid having to close them down.

He should do what I do - start a thread in a dusty subforum and strike up a conversation with yourself.

The old "make yourself way too big to fail" trick.

I think the old adage has acquired a new line:-

  • If you owe the bank $100 thousand, then you have a problem.

  • If you owe the bank $100 million, then the bank has a problem.

  • If your bank owes $100 billion, then your country's taxpayers have a problem.

Great point. How Long before Santader is the next bank owned by the British tax payer, lets face it the spanish government can't afford it. We can't either but we can printy,print.

one bust company uses taxpayers money to buy another bust company which survives on taxpayers money.

they are buying ghost companies with ghost funds while all along extracting real profits to the few. and we all sit here and take it turning our attention to 'super roo' and 22 over paid idiots kicking a bladder into a piece of netting.

Why can't we just pretend that it has enormous assets and extend the farce until the fairies sprinkle magic dust of the world's economic problems and everything is OK again?
