RBS chairman Hampton could be next to go, gives the game away in interview

RBS chairman Philip Hampton could follow CEO Stephen Hester in leaving the state-backed bank. In an interview with Bloomberg he was asked if he would resign. The choice lines are below:

Chairman do normally do five, six, or seven years. That's the normal lifespan... that's a very typical planning horizon.

Hampton became RBS chairman just over four years ago.
