Edinburgh on Alert for RBS AGM

Following the G20 trillion dollar package attention moves to Edinburgh where the Royal Bank of Scotland is holding its AGM today.

The peaceful group People & Planet had been handing out invitations in London asking people to join them in protest as the Bank's shareholders meet in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. However, that are fears that after the high profile attack on the RBS London Headquarters during the week and on Sir Fred Goodwin's home last month that not all the protests in Edinburgh will be peaceful. The Scottish Government and People & Planet have both issued calls for protesters to behave in a peaceful and responsible manner.

Hopefully the banks shareholders will be allowed to go about their business peacefully. Some of these will no doubt be asking serious questions of the board about the business that led to this years record loss and bail out from the Government.
