Why we've interviewed RBS but not Lloyds
Many of you followed yesterday's story about Royal Bank of Scotland posting losses of £3.6bn for 2009 whilst at the same time paying bonuses of £1.3bn to its staff.
It's a story which provoked high emotions. Not only do many of you bank with RBS as individuals and businesses but we all, as taxpayers, own a very large chunk of the bank - 84 % to be exact.
One of the ways we were able to cover both sides of the story was the willingness of the RBS boss Stephen Hester to be held accountable. Through interviews on the BBC he was able to speak to his customers and shareholders - you may not agree with what he had to say but he laid out a reasoned and coherent case for his actions. You can see one of his interviews here.
There's another bank in which we all have a major stake (41% in this case) and which owes its existence to support from all of us. Lloyds has announced its results this morning. It too has made big losses and its share price sits well below what we taxpayers paid for our stake.
The BBC has been asking Lloyds bosses for interviews but so far they don't feel the need to answer our questions or explain their plans for taxpayers to get their money back.
Lloyds CEO Eric Daniels - the only boss of a rescued UK bank to keep his job throughout the crisis - and on a salary of more than £1m - doesn't seem to feel the same responsibility to be accountable as his opposite number at RBS. If you do have questions you'd like to put to Eric Daniels or the Lloyds Chairman Sir Win Bischoff, then please write them here and we'll keep asking and hope they change their minds.
