After all the political witch hunt against the boss of RBS's bonus a million in worthless shares have been saved.....well just over half a million with four hundred grand in tax lost.
A great victory for unpopular political types and the mob.
It's such a shame that the RBS and Lloyds TSB banks, both with serious taxpayer money invested, in the case of RBS being 87% public owned, has lost just shy of a billion pounds because of this witch hunt.
Markets really don't like politicians acting illegally or interfering.
Still as far as Ed Miliband is concerned its only a billion in taxpayer money. It's cheap if it garners him some votes.
