The government now own the majority of RBS.

Yay?

It seems the banks need more money, so I wonder how many independent banks and building societies will remain?

I am a member of RBS.. I guess if the government now own the majority then it has more security, but we'll see.

Thank fuck I jumped from the RBS when I did...

RBS also owns Natwest.

But at least the Gov'ment can effectively control RBS, and ergo it's mortgage and interest rates.

Not sure it will actually exercise that control though.

Agreed. But from what I am aware of (Parents bank with RBS, I bank with Natwest), they're not exactly being a pain with rates like other banks have been.

So why are we posting these things here, rather than in the original and best community?
