Responding to RBS’ 2018 results, which show profits doubling to £1.62bn, and a £977 dividend payment to the government, Fran Boait executive director of Positive Money said:

“Another dividend payout should cast even further doubt on the government’s plans to sell the public’s majority stake in RBS at a loss.

“It’s beyond clear that an RBS fire sale is not in the public interest. The government must rethink the sell-off and consider how a publicly owned bank can best benefit the whole country.”
