RBS managers took part in the manipulation of global interest rates, Bloomberg reports, while traders collaborated with counterparts at other banks.

    How is that even possible? Can you imagine the first day at work for these guys? "Welcome to RBS Bob, this is your desk. Now, this is the computer where you buy interest rate derivatives, and this is the computer where you manipulate the interests rates. Any question?" "No sir, everything looks fine here, thanks"
