However, he has still got his pension

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

What ever has happened to the British way of, 'don't kick a man when he is down'. A lot of what has been said about Goodwin has been rather vindictive. He got his knighthood for services to banking in 2004 and I do not remember many people saying he was unworthy of the award. RBS under his stewardship upto 2004 was an outstanding success.

Do we now revoke all past awards and honours for a present failure? I notice a lot of MPs have called for the removal of Goodwin's knighthood, the same MPs who sent the UK Armed Forces to fight in Iraq on the basis of a politically driven untruth of Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction.

People in glass houses should not throw stones.
