When things went adrift in 2008ish RBS and Lloyds were the ones who received government money(your money) via the Bank of England , why the hell did Alistair Darling , not just nationalise RBS and Lloyds,
Instead he said that 83% was going into "public ownership". What a load of nonsense!!
He should have taken the full thing and restructure it into a National Bank,That way growth could be maintained (for the customer and the economy)
Just wait, May is going to sell it off to her chums I have no doubt it'll be foreign ones and at the UK financial loss,
Does the public get interest form RBS?
Why not ?
If you have an RBS loan, do you not pay them interest and not at under 1%?

Time for radical thoughts
