The IMF delegation should schedule a meeting with NAMA's Brendan McDonagh while they are in town.It might be helpful to them as they try to come to grips with the scale of corporate disgovernance which is now a hallmark of the Irish banking culture.The master of speaking out of both sides of his mouth. There is no need for this nonsense. Bankers committed offences which are already criminal offences. Hiding personal loans, faking balance sheets, lying to Nama about the collateral for loans. Enough with the diversions and charge them already.
The Oireachtas would be pretty empty were that to come to pass, in the context of the EU Treaties negotiated by those parties in terms of the destruction of Irish sovereignty by pulling the wool over the eyes of the Irish people. :roll:"I believe that there should be an offence of financial treason, carrying a mandatory sentence and huge fines, that would be applicable to defined individuals working in financial institutions licenced by the Irish State. There would be convictions on foot of any decision made knowingly by such individuals that result in reputational damage for the country, an unacceptable economic cost, or a loss of economic sovereignty."
Several words.Proposing more law while condoning the non-enforcement of exisiting law - there must be a word for that?
Did that happen? If it did couldn't the individuals concerned be charged with obstruction?Fair play to Boyle. Defining a law of financial treason with mandatory sentence will concentrate the minds of those Muppets who stuck two fingers up to the State and refused to reveal computer encryption codes to the police.

Desperate Dan. If this is the Greens' response to what their pals in government have done to the country then they can go back to gathering frog spawn in their garden ponds.Green Party Senator Dan Boyle has announced today that he will be proposing a Seanad Private Members Bill into the Seanad to define the crime of "financial treason". The Greens say the new laws are needed to prosecute white collar crime and fraud.
+1Desperate stuff. Let me guess - a bill that can be introduced safe in the knowledge that it will not pass. What does 'financial treason' even mean? Grandstanding, nothing more.
