Jobs for the Boys

‘World’s worst banker’ Sir Fred Goodwin quietly returns to business

He became the public face of the biggest banking crisis in a century: unashamed, unloved and, ultimately, unemployable. Or so it seemed. Sir Fred Goodwin, the former Royal Bank of Scotland chief executive dubbed “the world’s worst banker” for his role in bringing the City to its knees, has quietly returned to corporate life in Edinburgh after more than a year in virtual hiding.

  • Why couldn’t he have retired with his millions and let someone else have the new job? Greed of course.

    How can he hold his head up in the local community where so many wish him ill?

  • Fellow Edinburgh architects expressed amazement at the appointment. “This is a guy who was once branded ‘The world’s worst banker’,” said one. “Why on earth would you want to appoint someone like that?” one said.

    Why indeed. I suspect this is Scottish Rite Freemasons looking out for one another. What better explanation could there be to appoint an utter disaster as a advisor unless he is part of the Brotherhood.

  • He’ll probably fit in very well.

    ”But tonight the appointment was described as a ‘marriage made in hell’ given the recent histories of the firm and its new employees.

    RMJM was the firm awarded the lucrative contract for the parliament at Holyrood which was originally supposed to cost £40 million.
    Despite assurances from RMJM that the building could be completed within a £50 million budget, the cost soared to almost 10 times that figure and the project was completed years behind schedule”.

  • He will fit in very well there, turning a £50million job in to a £500 million one is the sort of thing that will be right up his street and is nothing short of a business miracle especially when the government is footing the bill. It will be interesting to see what sort of contracts come RMJM’s way now Fred is on board.

    I look forward to seeing RMJM going BUST!
