Whatever...

Whatever...

A place to share stuff that isn't at all fintec related but is amusing, absurd or scary.

As if RBS didn't have enough problems...

Today in post-Bank Holiday London a group of climate change campaigners snuck onto the RBS trading floor in the Bishopsgate offices and glued themselves together. The WSJ has printed a few words on the incident.

RBS staff were told not to leave the building. But it seems the pasted-protestors, who had disguised themselves as building workers, stayed inside the building for four hours.

It does seem RBS got off lightly. Members of the same climate change group also glued themselves together in front of the Edelman PR offices in the City. However, these guys were also naked. The WSJ reports that they stayed naked for 'three hours'. In addition to an eye-full, Edelman staff also got free lunch.

Ah, Tuesday fun.
