RBS Have No Shame

gordon pell chief executive of rbs who got a huge pension and a nice pay offHere we have Gordon Pell. The last of the greedy, half baked fuck wits who ran the Royal Bank of Scotland. He is set to leave the 'team' with a £517,000-a-year pension.

Deputy chief executive Gordon Pell, who earned £908,000 last year, will retire from the part-nationalised bank early next year with a pension pot of £9.8million.

Following the announcement of finance director Guy Whittaker's departure yesterday, Mr Pell, 59, is the last survivor from the board which oversaw the bank's ill-fated expansion - including the acquisition of ABN Amro in 2007.

Mr Whittaker received a year's salary and benefits, totalling more than £1million, which he fully deserves after failing miserably at his job. The taxpayers in the UK funded the RBS to bail them out of the shit that dick heads like Pell put them in and now the public have a 70% stake in the bank. So, in effect, every taxpayer in the UK is now paying Pell £507,000 EVERY year for being a completely useless and complete failure.

All you UK taxpayers have pumped £20 billion into RBS. Are you now happy that you must fund the lifestyle of this idiot?

Under the stewardship of Goodwin and Whittaker, RBS made a £24.1billion loss during 2008 - the biggest in UK corporate history. They broke the record for incompetence, amazing that they get such rewards for it.

This is exactly the same as the AIG fiasco I wrote about before, AIG, Have You No Shame?

Patrick Swayze

patrick swayze illness is making him a shadow of his former selfPatrick Swayze's pancreatic cancer is clearly exacting a heavy toll on the ailing star.

A rail thin Swayze, now virtually bald having lost his hair as a result of treatment, looked a shadow of his former self during an outing in Los Angeles.

With his clothes hanging from his reduced frame, the actor was barely recognisable as he walked to his car.

The 56-year-old edged along the roadside, gripping hold of a nearby post for support as his brother Don waited in a car park to take him to an appointment.

I think this is a crying shame. Such a lovely looking man with a near perfect body reduced to this. My heart goes out to this guy, to be what he was, and to look how he did......and now this. It must be heartbreaking for him to suffer this way.


With his discoloured teeth and arms covered in tattoos, Sir Richard Branson seems to have undergone quite a transformation now that he is skint.

Thankfully, the image change is not down to the effects of the recession, but is for a new advert.

The Virgin Trains chief dons a workman's attire to appear in a new commercial promoting his company's West Coast Main Line services.

He's quite a card isn't he.
