Poor Ross McEwan. The new CEO of RBS came straight into the job and had to fight off attempts to break his bank up.
Now, another legacy of his predecessor Stephen Hester’s tenure is giving the bank some of its worst headlines yet.
This prompted the newspaper to accuse RBS of mafia-style practices, under the creative headline ‘RBS is Don Corloane’. Any fan of the Godfather movies will see what the sub-editors did there.
It’s another blow for the beleaguered UK banking industry. But it made us wonder what is worse: being accused of acting like a mafia Don? Or being revealed as a porn-addicted, coke and ketamine-snorting, rent boy frequenter like another former UK bank chief?
