As George Osborne claimed that EU rules on bankers' pay would lead to a "Fred Goodwin-style situation", Unite said the Chancellor "must not rubber stamp the corporate greed" at RBS, as the majority taxpayer-owned bank reportedly seeks to double its cap for bonuses to senior staff.
Thousands of RBS staff are struggling to feed their children and pay their utility bills as they earn so little. They, along with taxpayers, have every right to expect this Government to block any attempt to further reward these senior bankers.
The hypocrisy of George Osborne in claiming that 'it is totally unacceptable for bank bonuses to be paid on the back of taxpayer guarantees' will disgust working people.
His decision on RBS will show his true colours.
