Is RBS right to pay bankers £1.3bn in bonuses?
The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has announced losses of £3.6bn for 2009, but is still expected to reveal bonuses totalling £1.3bn. What is your reaction?
The bank's chief executive, Stephen Hester, who has said he will not take his bonus, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that RBS had lost out by not paying bigger bonuses.
RBS, which is 84% owned by the taxpayer, is the second major UK bank to report 2009 results, after Barclays announced record profits of £11.6bn.
Should bonuses be paid? Or do you disagree with the payments in principle? Did you receive an RBS bonus? What is your experience of RBS?
