I'm not sure why, but Natwest and RBS aren't exactly doing a stand-up job of, well, standing up. Both banks had their cards, cash machines, online, and phone banking go tits-up last night. Apparently loads of people had their cards swallowed by ATMs and everything, but did you even notice?
You know you're in a bad state of affairs when outages and cock-ups by important institutions like, errr, the one who holds all your money, becomes routine. What the hell is going on? Surely it can't be that hard to keep things running? I used to bank with Natwest, but I switched after the first utter balls up. Now I'm bloody glad I did. [BBC]
