And elsewhere, but of course the most important are the Cork ones :)

Wonder if Banksy will be interviewed?

Opening reprise of government quotes in Sept 2008 to Jan 2009 are cringe making.

Mr Lenihan -

We are not rushing in like some other governments without knowing precisely the situation in the banks.

This is not a bailout of the banks.

and our old favourite from Mr Cowen in the Dáil on 30 Sept 2008

It is my intention that the Irish taxpayer will not in any way be held liable for any deficit that might occur

Watch Lenihan coming out looking like a muppet.

He's utterly out of his depth and should be sacked.

He is a clueless fraudster who was sold a pup by the banks and WE'RE paying for it.

...and to think that he's lauded by some?

He's a fraud and a liar.

Gosh someone from Davy's claiming that it was worse in the 80s. Breaks their tradion of being permabears and doom mongers...

Karl Whelan - forty billion is what we are spending on these dodgy assets (via NAMA) - that is a big number

Ireland is an example of where you follow austerity and its not fine. That destroys the narrative.

Didn't mention that our total debt is heading for €800 Billion.
