We all know Anglo have made a "provision" of €2,800 million against his liabilities.

Is he being persued in the commercial court like developers ?

Has an examiner been appointed against his assets ?

Has he repaid any of the €2,800 million.

This is nearly 50% of all the pain we are taking this year alone.

When will there be a move against his various assets :)

Listen hammerhead!

The difference between Quinn and Fitzpatrick and the body politic of all flavours, is that Quinn produces something concrete.

(Oh, and he knows how to spell, which is more than we can say for you!).

Pi$$ off and leave this man alone!

People went to Mountjoy for not paying a couple hundred Euro littering fine in Co. Meath..

Sean Quinn doesn't pay back 2.8 billion, which you and I will have to pay off instead and people like you think he's a hero.

Only in Ireland.

Where there are no serious laws to punish the big boys who do wrong, they will continue to do wrong over and over again. Even after the meltdown and supposed tightening up of laws we had the Anglo 10 fiasco.

It hasn't gone away you know.

Ah well shure that makes everything alright then - Shure we don't mind paying all his debts for him then....:rolleyes:

There is one incorrectly spelt word in Hammer's post - Is highlighting that and being abusive really the only rebuttal of his post that you can provide ? :rolleyes:

I'm with Hammer on this one, Quinn deserves to be nailed to the cross and all his assets stripped and those he has gifted his family.

He went into the insurance business chasing the cashflows, nothing else, and a compliant regulator allowed him to get away with blue murder on capital reserves.

He should be done for reckless trading, barred from directorships and be given an engraved bucket for his time to come in the Joy with Ahern.

Quinn has shedloads on FF, thats why he is being 'protected', and protected he is. Quinns activities are close to the heart of the disaster that befell this country. Plenty of people know exactly what Quinn was about, Bertie knew obviously, as do the shinner leadership - they would have plenty to talk about in the Joy but in this banana republic that won't happen.

Quinn gambled, and lost.

And guess who has to pay for his losses?

You guessed it, me and everyone else.

What a brilliant little country Bertie and Cowen has created. A country turned into one big gambling casino, where the rich keep their money if they win when gambling, but the taxpayer pay the losses if they lose.

One of the reasons the IMF are here is because of idiots like Sean Quinn and his banking losses.

More 'dog in the manger victimhood' from the outraged unemployed and unemployable it would seem.

If we are going to have a new beginning, anewbeginning, then we have to move on. You cannot squeeze blood from a stone as the saying goes; Sean Quinn has been brought to his knees and will be lucky to end up owning 5% of the company.

What people are forgetting is, that this was a man who started from nothing and against all the odds, and through sheer bloody hard work built a business which became a massive employer. He was the leaven in the cake which lifted a lot of businesses in a region which had been depressed for generations.

Granted, he did succumb to greed to a certain extent, but his greed produced jobs which put bread on the tables of many families.

Sean Fitzpatrick took him hook, line and sinker waving the 'I'm the owner of the money tree' flag. Fitzpatrick 'personally' employed no one in the same sense as Sean Quinn. The money he 'borrowed' from his 'own bank' went towards propping up his 'own bank', and the rest was speculated abroad. Bubble economics.

Quinn's companies dug sand out of the ground, added value to it through employment and sold the resulting products to the markets right across Europe.

I won't comment on your last point if you don't mind.

He was a greedy. He put all his employees futures on a bet on Anglo. How stupid was that :(

He tried to take over a bank :)

Can he now repay the €2,800 million he owes the taxpayer !!!

He played the Bertie defence. I`m a simple man, ho ho ho

In any other country his children would have had to repay the money they extracted from his company, and he would be in jail, owning 5% of SFA.

The 'value' in Quinn's companies was built on an under-reserved insurance company. He's no more a businessman than Bernie Madoff.

That is untrue. He built a great business and was undone by a spectacular mistake. It happens but life goes on.

The big bad wolf and FF patsy Fitzpatrick is to blame ?. Oh, well that makes it ok then, go ahead and lets move on, nothing to see here, let the taxpayer pick up the tab.

Quinn seems to be no better than any of the other cute hoors. Disappointing. But we're used to it now.
Now we know we can't trust anyone, least of all anyone with FF connections.

Both could repay us :)

Is the Slieve Russell now owned by NAMA ?

The Belfry could be worth a few quid sterling.

I presume Anglo now own it along with all his other assets :)
