Had a chance to speak to several people in or close to RBS middle management this weekend. They all told me one thing: that the sole aim of the place is to get back to the way things were pre-August 2007. Humpty Dumpty has to be put back together again.
They hate the idea.
They think it’s mad.
The directive comes from the top.
And the Treasury is doing nothing at all to stop it.
This is neglect of public duty on our politician’s part. And if RBS staff are angry what should the rest of us be?
