That sounds like cutting off your leg to save your finger.

We should have called their bluff. But Brian & Brian were complete muppets.
The ramifications from Anglo going tits up would have forced the EU/ECB to fund it.

How much were total deposits held in Irish banks in 2007 ?
I'd hazard a guess and say paying up to €100,000 per account would have been a cheaper alternative.
That's the current Brexit strategy and I don't buy it.

In 2008, the then Taoiseach, Brian Cowen, was caught on a live mic in Dail Eireann calling Kenny, Shatter, and the rest of the Fine Gael opposition front bench “Freemason Fuckers”.
Ignorance Is Not Always Bliss
Cowen was typical of the mediocrities that are Ireland's ruling class. A product of nepotism and family connections. Even owed his position on the Offaly hurling squad to FF connections. Would he have been selected on merit alone?

Because he was a wisecrack and a good mimic, many in FF saw this as intellectualism and people talked in hushed tones about how 'clever' he was.,

We all saw just how fucking clever he was.

I remember that incident but I thought he just said "get those fuckers in here".
He was heard whispering to Mary Coughlan 'Get all of those fuckers in here now'.

She was even more fond of profanity than he was .

Another mediocrity who should never have been near a position of power.
