Well you see we HAD to bail out the banks so depositors would not lose their money.

Now the ECB has said that depositors can expect to lose their deposits aftr the banks have been bailed out.

So the banks can take your deposits, without offsetting the stolen deposits off monies owed to the bank and you will STILL owe them what you owe them, even if they take €900,000 off you and you only owed €50,000.

This is the EU you voted for so 'shurrup'!

Richie Boucher's pay package is well above €800,000 well above the €500,000 pay cap plea introduced by Noonan. Boucher refuses to take any more reductions his remuneration package. And what does the Minister do?

Why is Boucher one of the lending architects of the Irish bubble still allowed to continue to ruin our banks?
There are two things that the government must do over the next few weeks if they want to maintain any credibility whatsoever

The first one is to oppose outright any increases in Richie Boucher's salary; publicly and unequivocally.

The second one is to be a little more forceful with public sector unions than running down to the Labour commission in the hope that they can rescue what is clearly a dead duck

The answer to the Q is Yes...

The banks now rule the f***ing world thanks to the total failure to deal with them the way they should have been dealt with back in 2008...

They've been bailed out and instead of pumping all that bailout money into the economy where it was supposed to go... they've simply hoarded it or shoved it into Government bonds etc...

Their arrogance has returned with a vengeance (if it ever left)...

It's a travesty what's happened... but it has happened and it continues... a massive global fraud being perpetrated by governments and banks and the top 5% on the rest of us...

Jaysus I hope my son is good with numbers.

Bankings where's it at people. Apart from a soccer player it's the only job where you can behave like a major sh!te and get paid more.

It's the government who are coming cap-in-hand looking for a deal.. . . .They tried being "forceful". It didn't work.

You don't have to be good with numbers to be a banker

Is there are more compliant wimpy Minister of Finance in Europe than Noonan. The banks, the bondholders, the Troika and others have run rings around him.

Seems that Noonan has no interest in the remuneration of bankers yet takes a keen interest in the remuneration of public servants. How odd.

I think Bertie Ahern would beg to differ.

FFS... There can be no claims made now that this (Boucher's pay) is part of anyone's contract if it's now up for approval...

FG and Noonan are a feckin' disgrace...

They should be cutting the sh!t out of Boucher's renumeration and voting accordingly, and if Boucher doesn't like it then Boucher can f*** off...

I'd like to see how many banks or financial institutions would be queuing up for Boucher and his 'skills' if he did f*** off... I suspect not very many...

Why he is still in situ having been at the heart of BoI throughout the shambles is also infuriating...

If law and order seriously breaks down in this country nobody should be surprised in the least when sh!t like this persists with no sign of it ending...

Talk about rubbing our noses in it...

Only a complete fool would think the government controls the country, the bankers call the shots and always will as long as the electorate continue to vote in the same right wing corrupt political parties.

no... they didn't

An Irish government has never been forceful with an Irish Union

Much as you like to delude yourself otherwise.
