It turns out that widespread and longstanding failures by the Royal Bank of Scotland (Now part of the Lloyds Banking group), have been causing some concern to the authorities.
Way back around 2007/9, 28 struggling small businesses in the Reading area seem to have been given loans by RBS that did not comply with that banks official lending policy (You can say that again!)
Senior banker at the RBS, Lynden Scourfield, seems to have been authorising large sums of dosh to these businesses with no err…… authority to do so. He is a very naughty boy, but he didn’t actually get nicked.
Former banker David Mills, did get nabbed though. He is a proprietor of Consultancy Firm, Quayside Corporate Services (nudge nudge! wink wink! say no more) who had a relationship with each of these ailing companies and there seems to have been some involvement with rather creative and seemingly corrupt practices.
Mills, along with his wife and 4 others are pleading not guilty to charges of being bent as nine bob notes, between the years 2003 and 2007
I have to say that I am shocked and upset that members of the fine upstanding banking community should stoop to assisting such low practices. Actually I have to say no such thing in all honesty.
I am sick to the back teeth of watching the parade of Wealth stripping us of money, and stealing every last cent that isn’t bolted down. I sincerely hope that if this case is proven, the perpetrators go down for a very long time, but I won’t be holding my breath, promotion and a big fat bonus usually follows a banking fuck up.
