The country has once again fallen into the hands of dangerous cretins.

With the Irish taxpayer still holding 71% of AIB stock, this administration had played a lunatic game of anglophobic chicken with Britain. A game that they were always primed to lose.

Rather than lose face and act like adults, these clowns have shown themselves willing to inflict massive financial damage on Irish citizens, shrug their shoulders and blame the Brits.

Fück. Wits.
The Tory Party does not have any role within the Irish Government. None of the Brexit farrago was initiated in any way in Dublin.

Please explain how the Conservative Party's holding of a referendum and decision to leave the EU was somehow arranged by Dublin.

Your apparent position is just plainly and factually incorrect. I have no idea how you are able to deduce for yourself that Ireland holding those who signed an international agreement to their signature is somehow 'anglophobic'.

it isn't Dublin's duty to wave through anything the UK tories want no matter what agreements they have previously signed. And how you managed to whimper 'anglophobia' on top of that speaks more of your inability to analyse than reality.

On St Patricks day 2008, the markets called time on the gombeen spoofers running the Irish economy into the ground. The collapse in anglo irish bank shares was a clear signal of grotesque Irish banking regulatory failure. It presaged imminent collapse.

How did the clueless gombeen elite react? Change course? Formulate plan B? Nope. They ranted about foreign (i.e. British) spivs and speculators.

Today, a comparable collapse (over several months) in AIB bank share price is being ignored by the cowardly, corrupt Irish media. The markets are saying that our Brexit policy has failed. What has the gombeen reaction been? They rant about stupid evil Brits.

Billions of Irish taxpayer wealth has been squandered by an europhile groupthink and bigoted anglophobia.

Please stop posting. You are using up valuable pixels with sheer utter stupidity.

Volatire, there some clearly emotive subjects for you where you tend to lose all reason.

Of course bank shares are under pressure. And not just in Ireland. Brexit is causing jitters in both the UK and Irish markets, around bank shares and in particular banks heavily exposed to rises and falls in property prices.

It is no accident that some financial institutions have eased back in the market- in fact, Brexit jitters have actually caused discounting at around 6% of the market, certainly in property values in the UK.

I'd agree with you that regulation in Ireland around the banks comes in the category 'So passive it can barely raise the energy for a sh*t' but that's nothing new and is quite deliberate.

I took my savings off the market back in February and won't be going near the market again for some time.

The Tories are bastards.

Crossrail is proof they have contempt for ordinary people. They spent billions on a project that will help rich bankers get to work. Meanwhile they cut welfare for people who haven't worked in years. Pure evil stuff.

Better be like Paddy. Live in a house in the middle of nowhere and be stuck in a car half the time.


Irish property is a bad bet. Not enough high density opportunities in the cities.

I'd be surprised if anyone alleged they were anything other than self-interested. That's pretty much their core manifesto.

Irish banks are nothing in the grand scheme of things.

All the Irish banks put together wouldn't even be as big as HSBC.

Oh yes.

Crossrail was pure evil. A bailout for scumbag builders after everything failed.

Sad to see that the Banks' share price are down so far and so fast in the space of a year or so. I kinda got disquieted to read an interview with (forget-her-name, the head of Bank of Ireland). She seemed to be carrying the gender equality placard high on her shtick. No time to be missionizing I would have thought, whatever the merit of the cause. Das Kapital just doesn't think that way and even might get upset and go so far as to hit the return button to get more of the funds out and back over to the safety of Wall street.

On another front. Sympathy for the Irish cause and wearing the Green Jersey. It's lamentable that the banks have kept their bad reputation, squeezing the tracker mortgage holders. Is anyone going to feel sorry for them or patriotic this time round?
They need sympathy and deposits real bad.

This administration has already pissed away billions on the childrens hospital fiasco. It plans to waste billions more bringing high speed porn to farmers. Now, courtesy of industrial-scale anglophobic groupthink, billions have been lost on AIB. Billions.

Time to cut our losses. Do a deal. Negotiate like grownups instead of sulking like bitter old bitches.

Ah yes. Now there's an ambition. To have a bank big enough to launder money for a methamphetamine criminal gang, the Sinaloa Cartel.
