The Titanic

What spoilsports they are at Royal Bank of Scotland. We’ve waited years to hear again from Fred Goodwin and Sir Tom McKillop, chief executive and chairman of the bank when it sank in 2008. Now the board wants to kill the legal case that could see the duo, plus two other former directors, cross-examined in court.

I have always thought Fred Goodwin should see the inside of the courtroom. A lot of public cynicism about government, regulators and – especially – bankers stems from the fact that those who did the most to cause the financial crash seemingly got away scot-free.
