Royal Bull Shit (Royal Bank of Scotland or RBS nickname)

The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) was formed in 1727; its U.S. branch is the Citizens Financial Group (Citizens Bank). The obvious RBS nickname of “Royal B.S.” (Royal Bull Shit) has been cited in print since at least 2007.

RBS has also been nicknamed “Royal Bank of Swindlers.”


Wikipedia: Royal Bank of Scotland
The Royal Bank of Scotland plc (Scottish Gaelic: Banca Rìoghail na h-Alba) is one of the retail banking subsidiaries of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc, and together with NatWest and Ulster Bank, provides branch banking facilities throughout the British Isles. Royal Bank of Scotland has around 700 branches, mainly in Scotland though there are branches in many larger towns and cities throughout England and Wales. The Royal Bank of Scotland and its parent, the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, are completely separate from the fellow Edinburgh based bank, the Bank of Scotland, which pre-dates the Royal Bank of Scotland by 32 years. The Bank of Scotland was effective in raising funds for the Jacobite Rebellion and as a result, The Royal Bank of Scotland was established to provide a bank with strong Hanoverian and Whig ties.

Branding
RBS branding on a branch in JerseyThe RBS Group uses branding developed for the Bank on its merger with the National Commercial Bank of Scotland in 1969. The Group’s logo takes the form of an abstract symbol of four inward-pointing arrows known as the “Daisy Wheel” and is based on an arrangement of 36 piles of coins in a 6 by 6 square, representing the accumulation and concentration of wealth by the Group. The Daisy Wheel logo was later adopted by RBS subsidiaries Worldpay, Ulster Bank in Ireland and Citizens Financial Group in the United States.

RBS: Regal Bull Shit
On the news this morning, it was suggested by RBS directors that they’d be forced to resign en masse should government - the 80+% owner of the bank - tells it not to pay out the £1.5bn in bonuses that the bank is planning.

Royal BS
Written by Brant Olson
Hundreds of climate activists set up camp this morning next to the headquarters of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) in Edinburgh. Since an October 2008 bailout, taxpayers have owned more than 80% of the bank.
