Here’s a hot potato; catch!

Rock readies for sale despite losses of £232m

Ron Sandler made his comments as the bank posted a loss of £232m for last year. He said a clear return to profit would be a benefit in attracting investors but that if it was on track for profit, that could be enough for a move out of nationalisation.
