If only RBS had let Barclays get ABN Amro, then it would have been Barclays in trouble !

On the contrary...I heard that between RBS and ABN, the latter was much better performing recently...

I was quoting the Spectator:

Barclays wanted to buy ABN-Amro too and, had they succeeded, would surely have been left with the same mess RBS (and Fortis) discovered once they took control of the Dutch bank.

Not sure what state ABN Amro are in now though...
