Posted in Audio & Podcasts · 3 comments ·

David discusses the nationalisation of Anglo Irish Bank which he predicted 2 weeks previously on the RTE Radio 1 program, Morning Ireland on January 16th 2009.

The program is available listen to from the RTE website here (opens in a new window and requires Real Player).

Additional interviews on the story are available on the right hand side of the media player.


  1. David said “our economy is being run by a government which knows nothing about economics”.
    True, but alas it is a government which-allied to the big property developers whom it fronts – it, and those same patrons know everything about greed.
    Ireland;a country with proportionally more unused land than any other nation in Europe-but 300,000 Euros for a one bedroom badly insulated dogbox in our capital city says it all.

    Just downloaded the show, and the best bit has to be Lenihans interview. What a load of old codswallop. Heres the thing though: a Paxman or a Humphries would have torn him to pieces, especially if they had been accused of saying things that were “damaging to the reputation of the state”. The Irony!!. He was pressed but not nearly hard enough. The Irish Fourth Estate is and has been an absolute shambles the last few months, and this is yet another example. How can somebody be allowed to get away with such blatant twaddle?

    David, forget about talking to RTÉ, that’s a dead duck. Try the BBC’s Panorama.

    David, I am not a fan. I do however rate you and your views far higher than this appalling Government. The sheer incompetence and lack of leadership would be laughable if it were not so serious. There is no sense of leadership, u-turns are made on every decision. Already the restriction on withdrawing funds by those owing more than €20million has been erased.

    Ireland has been labelled a “banana republic” and the”wild west of Europe” in some quarters, put simply no-one will trust us or our Government. I have been apolitical for a lot of my life, but I believe it is time to march on the Dáil and demand the resignation of every minister- They are demeaning our country.

    It is time for real leadership.
