RBS Chief Executive Stephen Hester has waived his million pound bonus because he “does not wish to become a pariah“.
According to BBC Radio 5Live, Hester, whose decision to reject the bonus had nothing to do with RBS chairman Philip Hampton waiving his, hates this photograph of himself in a big hat on horseback and is tired of the media using it in their coverage.
Out of respect for Hester, and in homage to Private Eye’s running ‘Andrew Neill in a vest gag‘, I therefore intend to publish it in a variety of irrelevant contexts whenever possible.
You should, too.
