RBS in disgrace

Royal Bank of Scotland’s semi-literate advertisement urging us to “get rewarded just for using your credit card” is fortuitously juxtaposed with the article headline immediately opposite (Scotsman, 25 November) ­disclosing the bank’s alleged proclivity for profiting from the distress of viable businesses.

An indication of the disgrace of what was once a source of pride in Scotland could hardly have been more stark.
