RBS boss bows to pressure and gives up £1m bonus
Stephen Hester, head of the Royal Bank of Scotland, gave way to heavy political pressure last night to forego his £963,000 bonus.
The final straw for the RBS chief executive appears to have been the looming threat of a vote in the House of Commons condemning the Government for failing to block the payment.
He is reported to have feared becoming "a pariah" over the controversy.
