Ron Sandler, the Treasury appointed chairman of Northern Rock, is a non-dom, Robert Peston confirms. Add to this the brewing row about how much the new management team is being paid and the political connections of some of those appointed to the board and you can see how Northern Rock is going to be a constant irritation to the government. The bad news for Alistair Darling and Gordon Brown is that they probably won't be rid of Northern Rock before the next election.
