NatWest Reconsiders Russia Today Ban

corbz-rt

Yesterday Natwest said they would not be reconsidering their decision to close Russia Today’s bank account – well, under 24 hours later they are. A spokesman now says:

“We are reviewing the situation and are contacting the customer to discuss this further. The bank accounts remain open and are still operative.”

So what’s going on? It could be a response to the Kremlin threatening to freeze the BBC’s accounts in Russia in retaliation. Or maybe they thought again after Russia whinged about their right to freedom of speech/propaganda. Bit of an overreaction given RT wasn’t exactly being taken off air. Bank error in their favour?
