- RBS is/was Scottish - perhaps - and yet the debts are British? Hmm!
- Hester is a public servant in that over 80% of RBS is owned by the UK Government, and yet he is not subject to the rules that apply to other public servants. It seems that the government can pay him what they want, whatever his levels of success - or otherwise.
- Hester couldn't bring himself to commit to working for RBS for a few years more, after a potential privatisation and hence . . .
- Hester generously agrees to give up his job, on the basis of a payment (eventually) of £5.6 million.
After all, how many pies could a corpulent t**t buy for that much money?
Furthermore, how can governments create contracts that are so generous and yet trample on ordinary people - and still expect to be re-elected?
Small note: T**t could stand for 'twit'
