My comments on the RBS scandal - 'the largest theft ever'


“The largest theft, anywhere, ever” – these were words I used in a speech I made last week about the scandalous behaviour of the Global Recovery Group of the Royal Bank of Scotland.

The GRG systematically asset-stripped small businesses – the lifeblood of our economy – and so far they’ve pretty much got away with it.

But I’m glad to see that our newspapers are starting to realise the scale of this fraud and with their help we may yet see justice done. It’s very gratifying to see a backbench speech get this sort of coverage and a real reminder of why we all need to fight for a free and independent press.
