In January the Royal Bank of Scotland recorded the biggest loss in British corporate history - £28bn. Just three months ago New Labour bunged £20bn of our money at RBS to help prop it up. We have since made a £12.5bn loss on our holding as share prices headed south. Where did our money go? It seems to have disappeared in a puff of smoke.  So the government has decided to give them another £5bn of our money. The bank’s worth is disappearing by the day as its share price evaporates. At the time of writing the total share price of the 300 year old bank was just £4bn. In 2007 it was £78bn.
