IT may be hard for some to believe, but I have some sympathy with the Royal Bank of Scotland over its current travails ("IT meltdown could cost RBS millions", The Herald, June 26).
Most of us who own a computer will have had software problems, and many big organisations have had similar difficulties with their systems.
It's just unfortunate that the effects of the problem at RBS have been so difficult for some of its customers.
Eventually, we're going to have to stop beating up on RBS.
The team of chancers led by Fred Goodwin who ran the bank into the buffers has long gone, and the current leadership seems to be doing a decent job getting things back on track.
As the owners of most of the bank, it's in all our interests for RBS to return to strength.
It should not be forgotten that a lot of jobs depend on it.
