Well if we were leeching off the public tit to the extent that our senior public servants are, we wouldn't have any concept whatsoever of what the little people have to go through - it's called APARTHEID!

You're missing the important line in the story....criminal lawyers have been engaged!!!!

It's nice to see public money going to the needy so close to Christmas.

Of course AGS would probably struggle to come up with any evidence anyway and even if they DID it's not beyond the bounds of possibility that the evidence would be shredded by accident during the trial.

I'd say the bank execs will enjoy a remarkably pleasant Christmas all the same.

They must have a new shredder at the ODCE. The Gardai will be around to borrow it at a suitable juncture.

There are a huge number of ex bankers and stockbrokers at the Central Bank
They fled there during the crisis for a cushy number
They should never have been allowed in the door, Banking and Stockbroking greed DNA is ingrained in them

Like hiring supergrasses and expecting them to be paragons of virtue

Couldn't help noticing that one of the senior gardai on the investigation team from AGS looking into affairs at Anglo also jumped ship and took a job at an investment bank.

Probably ran out of puff trying to make his quota of breath tests.

The Central Bank doesn't even have a reason to exist. It does not have a role in currency management since the advent of the Euro and after the Troika bailout it has even less to say about monetary policy or budgeting.

It certainly couldn't be accused of being a regulator either.

You're at nothing the great and the good of P.ie are too busy putting the boot into the homeless scum that cause all our problems.

Don't you know banks are the most put upon institution in the Irish state, begorrah.
