Commenting on the resignation of Ross McEwan from RBS, Liberal Democrat Scottish Affairs spokesperson Jamie Stone MP said:
“The Chief Executive has resigned saying he has "delivered the strategy" he set out when taking over. However, the people of Scotland will agree that the only things he has delivered are countless bank closures and a huge loss of customer confidence.
“While it may be true that profits have increased, the bank ranked bottom of an official survey of customer satisfaction and branch closures continue to be replaced by erratic mobile services.
“RBS customers deserve better than this. Ross McEwan should be admitting the bank's failures rather than boasting of his own success.”
