The bankers who led Royal Bank of Scotland and HBOS to the brink of collapse will offer a public apology today.
But amid the furore over bankers’ bonuses, they will also seek to point out that they have personally been “punished for failure”, losing millions of pounds because of the meltdown in their banks’ share prices.
Sir Fred Goodwin and Sir Tom McKillop, respectively the former chief executive and chairman of RBS, will express their regrets at a meeting of the Treasury Select Committee. Their expressions of remorse will be echoed by Andy Hornby, the former chief executive of HBOS. and Lord Stevenson of Coddenham, its former chairman.
Jesus wept, what the fuck is that all about then? Since when did fucking any private business have to publicly apologise to politicians for shit? Or is this just a bit of face saving for the government so that we can all turn a blind eye to huge bonus payouts in the near future?
I am even more incoherent than usual with rage. And why oh why oh fucking tittywank why do we have to fuck go through the actual apologies when they've already been leaked for the fucking sake of fucking fuck. It now no longer matters what the cunts actually say to the MPs because the leak has been made and the headlines gathered.
I see the scaly claw of Mandelsnake all over this shit.
