Jaysus it's amazing that a fella who is expending so much in the way of blood sweat and tears has all this time to be on here constantly leaping to the defence of a gang of Fers who are.... wait for it ...working in those cushy public service jobs that apparently are populated by only blueshirts and pinkos. unless that is you don't count TDs as public servants(many of them ex teachers, social workers, etc etc.) then again I would hesitate to call most of them public servants either.Starting a business, running a business and succeeding in a business takes blood, sweat and tears. This is why Blueshirts go fo safe jobs in the public service and the Red to Pink follow them or spend their lives begging from the State. When you try to piss on a FF'er remember you are more likely dealing with a person full of guts and enterprise

100% mortgages in Ireland in 1984? With who? The Mr Perfect Blueshirts were in power. They were and still are a complete disaster.Back in 1984 and 1985 I bought two businesses with 100% loans not too long after buying the family house. I was up to my eyeballs in debt as a result but like a true FF'er I worked hard and eventually succeeded to pay my way. Where the eff was the Mr Perfect Blueshirts when I was allowed to borrow so much ? You are first class hypocrites with not a hope in hell of pinning the bank stupidity on Cowen ? The more I come across clowns like you the more staunch FF I become !!
It seems to be purely cosmetic. Having just finished The Banksters it would seem absolutely obvious that the government and regulators know precisely what went wrong and where. Pressure on the existing inquiries to bring the relevant players to the courts is required and instead we end up with an another inquiry undoubtedly designed to keep the public under control and giving FF more time to put distance between themselves and the mismanagement that brought the country to it's knees.It has nothing to do with learning anything.
Link:Iceland has taken steps towards this with the appointment of Eva Joly, a Norwegian born French judge with an outstanding history investigating corruption by politicians and vested business interests.
Her work investigating corruption is impressive, taking on, among others, former minister Bernard Tapie and the bank Crédit Lyonnais.
Her most famous case was that of Frances leading oil company Elf Aquitaine.
Despite death threats, she carried on the case to uncover several cases of fraud.
