  1. A bit of a follow up,
    RTE release a Morning Ireland podcast
    http://www.rte.ie/podcasts/2008/pc/pod-v-151208-40m46s-morningireland.mp3
    is the file for today.

    I haven’t listened to it yet (they edit down the file, adverts should be removed, and some of the traffic news is removed (as it’s out of date by the time the podcast is released)) but you should be able to find the interview in there and give a time code.

    p.s. Any idea why commenting is difficult your blog. The cursor keeps resetting to the start of the text entry field?

  3. John Q. Public

    Tax payer’s money being used to bail out the banks is fine if it works but tax payers should have a vote in terms of who keeps their jobs at BOI etc. After six months we should be able to text in our verdicts via mobile phone just like on big brother. I think most people would agree that the present predicament that faces people and the economy is a lot more worrying than whether a bank chief watches the odd bit of porno. Wouldn’t it be fair if the public had a say in who gets fired based on performance?

  4. Tax payers had a vote last year. it was called the general election and if it was held again today the same guys would probably win

  5. I might have given you the wrong morning Ireland URL

    This is the one for the 16th, the previous one was for the 15th

  6. The Eye

    We need to put a few of these rogue bankers in jail, they are getting the wrong message.

  7. Its rather scary that a government which has to borrow something like 50% of the money to pay the public sector wage bill this year is giving a guarantee for funds of 100 billion sitting in empty houses and apartments countrywide, and owed by Anglo Irish to various depositors and investors.
    My guess is that a huge chunk of money has already fled Anglo Irish-and the country, hence the new hurried legislation of mr Lenehan to stop the haemorhage.
    Man the lifeboats & The Devil take the hindmost.!
    Brian Lenehan has put his finger in a hole in the structure, but the whole dam is about to crumble- And we have not even looked at the two main banks.
