Credit crisis diary: No fun if you're with a nationalised bank

17th March 2009

To Twickenham, courtesy of Royal Bank of Scotland, for England v France. There was a time when one could depend on RBS for some decent hospitality – a three-course lunch before the game, a free bar and so on. Not any more. So determined is RBS to appear frugal now it's owned by the taxpayer that guests at the match were told to meet at the gate 15 minutes before kick-off – and very much expected to buy their own drinks.
