    I’m an avid reader of your columns for a good few years now and I have always been a disciple of your consistent theme of reckless credit expansion.

    I didn’t like the first show (Pope’s Children) but I thought the second restored some credibility by virtue of being more critical of this consumer boom and the reckless lending. Presume the third show is going to be a more apocalyptic view of the future . I’m convinced it will be a big external shock that brings the deck of cards tumbling, either :
    - an ‘Intel’ pulling out of Ireland and/or
    - a significant terrorist action in UK/Ireland and/or
    - a major banking collapse and/or
    - a dramatic upwards on oil prices and/or
    - none of the above

    I bought one of these sale & leasebacks in the South of France 18 months ago. My decision was based on a comparison of a two bed apartment in ‘uptown’ Tullamore (my hometown) at € 250k compared to a two bed a la Med (quatre cent metres de la mer a Languedoc !!) for € 92k… no brainer really when you think about it. It’s that imbalance that really puts the sh1ts up you.

    Keep banging that drum about credit !! Ciao !!

    PS : You shouldn’t have given that Dean of Law such a hard time on Monday night, he did have a point about the first show being a bit one dimensional. Then again, the two pariahs I see these days are lawyers and health “workers”…. a plague on both their houses.

  2. I just finished talking with my financial advisor and the subject came up about the younger people that are maxed out on their credit cards, live in a Mortgaged Apartment, eat out 2 or 3 times a week. drive around in a Late model car and yet are one pay cheque away from the Street…Ohhh, I live in Boston and we are talking about Masssachusetts not Ireland!!!!!!
