Dumfries Academy, attended by Henry Duncan.

The TSB - the Trustee Savings Bank - was founded by the Reverend Henry Duncan, in Dumfries and Galloway, in the early 19th century.

It was the world's first commercial savings bank.

The bank's aim was to help the working people of Dumfriesshire.

Henry Duncan never received any financial reward from his bank.

The current TSB is no longer like Henry Duncan's TSB.

The TSB is now part of the Spanish banking group Sabadell.

The current TSB is about making the top bankers rich.

The TSB has been sunk by dodgy tech from Banco Sabadell


In 1799 Henry Duncan was appointed minister of the 'very deprived' parish of Ruthwell, near Dumfries.

Duncan turned the local church land into a model farm to provide work.
Duncan used the village's Friendly Society to distribute food and grain to the poor.

In 1810, Duncan set up his savings bank.

Duncan ran the bank himself without pay.

The profits were used to provide services for the community. 

Duncan's savings bank idea spread to other parts of the UK and to Europe and the USA.


The large town of Dalbeattie, in Dumfries and Galloway, no longer has any bank.

And what about Sir Fred Goodwin?

Sir Fred Goodwin (Left), who has German Jewish origins, helped to damage the Royal Bank of Scotland.

On 7 June 2009, the Sunday Mail revealed that shamed banker Sir Fred Goodwin is a Scots gangster's cousin

Sir Fred Goodwin, former boss of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), is a cousin of 'one of Scotland’s most feared gangsters', 'ruthless crime kingpin' Grant Mackintosh.

The pair grew up less than a mile apart in Paisley, in Scotland.

Goodwin presided over the loss of £24.1billion while running RBS – the biggest loss in British corporate history. 

Mackintosh’s uncle Archie was Goodwin’s grandad, making the pair cousins. 

Mackintosh has been 'a leading figure in Scotland’s criminal underworld' for 25 years. 

He is a convicted drugs baron and was at one time the biggest cannabis distributor in the country. 

Mackintosh was a suspect in the gangland execution of John Hall and David McIntosh who were found dead in Larkhall, Lanarkshire, in 2001. 

During Goodwin’s tenure, RBS became the world’s fifth-largest bank, and Goodwin became very rich indeed. 

Goodwin grew up in the notorious Ferguslie Park, in Paisley (Ferguslie_P)
Sir Fred Goodwin was chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) from 2001 to 2008. 
His mother was of German Jewish heritage. (Fred Goodwin - Wikipedia
After University, he joined accountants Touche Ross. 
Reportedly, Touche Ross has had links to the CIA (Cached

Goodwin, while working for Touche Ross, was chief operating officer of the worldwide liquidation of BCCI, Bank of Credit and Commerce International, in 1990.

The BCCI was called the CIA’s money-laundering facility

(Bank of Credit and Commerce International - Wikipedia.

According to an article at Wikipedia: 

"RBS has been involved in an increasing number of environmental and human rights controversies since Sir Fred Goodwin took the helm in 2001. 

"RBS is heavily involved in financing large oil, gas and mining projects world-wide that environmental organizations like BankTrackPLATFORM , Pacific EnvironmentThe Cornerhouse, and Rainforest Action Network call 'dodgy deals' that they say severely damage the environment and local communities, and that contribute significantly to climate change.

"A profile by BankTrack tracks RBS financing of corporations involved in the 
production of uranium weapons, as well as the controversial Baku-T’blisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline transecting Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, the Sakhalin II oil and gas scheme in eastern Russia, the Freeport McMoRan mine in Indonesia, Sinopec oil and gas in Burma, the Dynegy coal fired power plant and mountaintop removal coal mining in the US." - Fred Goodwin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 

Sir Fred Goodwin has been a regular visitor to his friend, UK prime minister Gordon Brown. "Goodwin is one of a small handful of City grandees that the Chancellor relies on to give him advice." (Profile: Sir Fred Goodwin - Telegraph

In my opinion the most interesting RBS director is Peter Sutherland, because he was also chairman of Goldman Sachs International.

The most important man on Donald Trump’s financial campaign team (filled with Goldman Sachs alumni) was John Paulson (of Goldman Sachs), who made over $5 billion by betting against his own clients, while participating in crashing the American mortgage markets.
After making billions of dollars Goldman Sachs paid $550 million to settle fraud charges with the SEC and had the Frenchman Fabrice Tourre convicted for this multibillion crime. This scheme bankrupted the Royal Bank of Scotland, and because somebody had to pay, it were the British taxpayers that paid for the losses.

Subsequently Jacob Rothschild’s Blackstone Group and Goldman Sachs scooped up the real estate market (pennies for dollars).

It looks like Western capitalism is finished, we can't keep up with the Chinese anymore. Too many 'Entrepreneurs' and 'Job Creators' milking the pot leading to under investment. But hey, we'll just send our warships over there for not playing fair! How dare they use public banking where the elites can't make a packet out of it ripping us off.


Every five weeks, 9,500 brand new electric buses take to the roads in China.
That’s the equivalent of the entire London bus fleet, says a new report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
The world has around 3 million buses. Most run on diesel and compressed natural gas. The global fleet of electric buses now totals around 385,000 vehicles - and 99% of those are in China
