How can those appointed as public interest directors approve of this insanity.This has really gotten beyond the joke instead of begging taxpayers thanks everyday bankers in Ireland really seem to enjoy new ways of taking the pi$$ out of us. First jack up mortgage rates, second no loans to small business etc. third this nonsense. Quick question has "Fingers" paid back his million bonus like he promised to do last year? Answers on a postcard to Brian Cowan
How much do BoI expect to realise from the announced sale of BIAM,ICS and New Ireland?Bank of Ireland said yesterday the changes would result in the elimination of 50 per cent of the 1.6 billion deficit, with the Bank contributing a further 750 million over the next five years.
Firstly, it will be years before we can definitively state that anyone has "come out of the property saga best"Well BOI have come out of the property loans saga the best, the State will get its money back from them
Also this isn't a "bonus" - it is a private sector company accounting for its pensions properly
How on earth can you call the behaviour of any Irish businessnperson as "talent" at this point is beyond me ! There is no particular talent in Ireland, apart from screwing the system. Its absurd to believe that anything other than a safe set of hands is required, and for this, any moderate functionary would be sufficient. If the job dosent pay enough for Boucher, let him go, someone will take the job, and as long as Irish taxpayers are footing the bill, as cheap as possible until the bank is on its own legs again. There is an absurd sense of the single importance of particular people! This is the same in the civil service, where senior staff have become deluded on the importance of themselves. If people are so "Talented" let them hock their wares on the jobs market to test their true value....
Maybe it is time to put that little bit of bankers' propaganda to the test. Offer the second layer of management a salary of 300k or a P45? I'm sure they'll all be snapped up!!
