According to the book Shredded: Inside RBS, The Bank That Broke Britain, by the financial journalist Ian Fraser, the UK taxpayers risk losing their entire £45bn stake in Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) which is in grave danger of failing within 10 years.
According to Ian fraser, "At the time of writing, RBS is probably a worse bank than it was under Fred Goodwin."
Fred Goodwin 'brought about the collapse of the Royal Bank of Scotland', and 'broke Britain.'
