RBS are saintly because they've cancelled their jolly to Wimbledon

27 June 2012

RBSThe Royal Bank of Scotland have done something so very, very kind for us all, and called-off their junket to Wimbledon. There'll be no corporate hospitality for them this year as they try and deal with the catastrophic IT meltdown which has left thousands of customers without access to cash and left them unable to get their wages in.

The bank, who are under the impression this is all getting sorted out, reckon it would be "inappropriate" to continue providing the hospitality.

Not only that, the banking group (who also own NatWest, Ulster Bank and Coutts) have also cancelled a one-day golf tournament at Gleneagles that was to feature Jack Nicklaus. Now he's out of a job. The swines.

RBS Group are saying that everything should be back to normal by the start of next week, which is scant relief for those who can't get any money out to get the shopping in or are getting charged by third-parties for late-payment on payday week.

The bank said in a statement: "Technical issues have caused considerable disruption to many of our retail and business customers, as well as customers of other banks. We have made significant progress in resolving the issues and are working around the clock to put things right for our customers."

"Under the circumstances, we felt it would be inappropriate to provide client hospitality at Wimbledon. Our people are focused on resuming normal service for our customers as soon as possible."

    Because it used to be a really good consumer interest site, exposing all sorts of dirty tricks and fraudsters - a bit like an online version of Watchdog. But there's no investigation any more, just "cut and paste" jobs from other websites. Its all at least second hand news or three days old, or just tripe. Over the last six months or so, its got really, really crap. Its now just a home for some particularly vicious and childish trolls. I rarely bother to read the site nowdays. And when I do, its just crap. I shan't be bothering with it again.

    My brother recommended I might like this website. He was once entirely right. This publish actually made my day. You can not believe simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
