Labour says it will force a Commons vote calling for RBS chief executive Stephen Hester to be stripped of his near-£1m bonus.
It will hold a debate early next month to pressure the government over the £963,000 shares-only payment.
So, let me get this straight: a vote on Hester's bonus is going to be forced by a Labour contingent which:
- is almost entirely made up of MPs who were collaborators in the last Labour government,
- the government, in fact, which signed Hester's bloody contract in the first fucking place,
- and which overspent by billions of pounds a year (most of which was handed to Labour-supporting special interest groups),
- but which now seems to believe that a vote on a million quid bonus is incredibly fucking important.
Seriously, are these bastards possessed of absolutely no self-knowledge...?
P.S. Could I just take this opportunity to point out something else? The bailout of RBS was performed by buying RBS shares; if the shares do well, we taxpayers can get our money back. If the bank doesn't do well, then we won't.
As such, if you are a stupid fucking protester wanking on about the money we threw into bail-outs, then I suggest that you start protesting for big bank profits—because then we can all get our cash back.
