Here’s what the man wrote to RT:

“I have been a NatWest account holder in the UK since 2003, today I just emailed them the following text:

“According to today's news you arbitrarily intend to cancel the bank accounts of RT NEWS, as this is my preferred news source it is my intention to arbitrarily cancel my banking services with you and I sincerely hope that my account cancellation is joined by thousands of other like-minded account holders, I don't suppose you could recommend another banking service could you, perhaps one that sticks to banking and not politics?

“Sincerely, Tony West”
