The Empire Strikes Back

On my way to meet my friend B for a post-work Friday cocktail, I came across a familiar logo in the middle of the Sydney CBD (that's city centre to you non-Sydneysiders!) Clearly the nationalisation of RBS hasn't stopped its plans to expand into the Australian market - when one part of the empire collapses, efforts are redoubled elsewhere perhaps?! This is a promotional tent to do with the Australian Grand Prix this weekend (which is in Melbourne so seems slightly strange for this to be in Sydney) and given that RBS previous sponsorship of the ill-fated Stewart Racing team was widely seen as misguided, you have to wonder about the use of what must now by UK government money...
