Rbs Post Biggest Loss Ever By Uk Bank

Recommended Posts

The part of that article that really stood out:

The loss would be roughly five times higher than the deficit racked up by Barclays in 1992 at the height of the last recession.

.. and this is before things have even really started to heat up.

this is the bank coming back to see the chaos the party had caused.

carter is the market reality slapping the bank in the face at the end.

your a big bank but your in bad shape.

"..with me it's a full time job" says market reality.

Nice bit of youtubin' fred.

edit - "..now behave yourself"

Why does the phrase "money through extortion" rarely get used on HPC.

I think that clip abut sums it up.

Actually, I think that if this "blows" across the meeeja Monday morning, It's going to rock the casbah.

Good work

Cheers 29929BT. Long time admirer of your contributions here, so value the comment...

HOWEVER....

When you then realise that Mistor M Pillock's CEO is;

Sir Go Down Fried

You really have to wonder what their HR Director is thinking of when he's recruiting.

Maybe Neil Roden (Group HR Director RBS, according to Mrs Google,) is more

"Neir Dole'n"

than he realises...

:P

OK, my head hurts now. Time for a lie down...

Have a nice Sunday everyone.

Well, I Googled Mystic Merv, in the hope his middle name was helpful anagramwise.

I suppose from a class POV "Wayne" was never going to happen, but I did hope a bit it might be "William" or similar - so we could have a bit of "sexually self-sufficient" anagram fun. If you get my drift... :lol::lol:

But "Allister." What the sodding heck can we do with that? :angry: Surely not another closet Manse-raised bean-counting dullard from north o' the border?!

I gave up after a while to play the Wii with my son - hats off to anyone who can come up with something apt or amusing, while he's whipping my ass at baseball!

£1bn is nothing to be sniffed at, though, according to their last accounts, they'd need to loose £52bn more to be insolvent.

Two ideas especially interest me about RBS' situation:

1. What circumstances would lead to a break-up of RBS and Natwest? I presume that most losses are associated with RBS' activities not NatWest's - though I'd be interested to see any firm data one way or the other.

2. How much longer can Barclays hold out without admitting write-downs and losses?

2% of the way there.

Not long now then.
