ABN: Good win for Goodwin? I know a man that thought so

The RSS feed for the Scottish government Freedom of Information releases indicated the publication of material in response to freedom of information requests. Most interesting of the correspondence released is this.

The letter of May 2007 reads:

“Dear Fred

I want you to know that I am watching events closely on the ABN front. It is in Scottish interests for RBS to be successful, and I would like to offer any assistance I can provide. Good luck with the bid.

Yours for Scotland


Which bid was that then?

Oh – THAT one, which prompted this informed comment at the time (representing the views of most folk with a bit of knowledge of the sector). You know – the deal that brought down the Royal Bank of Scotland AND Fortis.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
