Nothing has come out of it. As was thought at the time, it was a smokescreen to keep the public happy.

Nothing will come out of it, No Bank official will be brought to task over their management. FF showed more concern in getting their hands on a cartoonist then they did getting answers out of Anglo Irish Bank.

It was a smokescreen. Kenny was on the case of the Anglo 10 and possible FF involvement. The best way to stop the questions being asked was to send the cops in, so Cowen could then say (if asked) " I cant comment on a ongoing Garda investigation".

Then Anglo 10, who are they? Why did the media go so silent about this?

I tried revive this topic here - Anglo Irish Investigation

I think apathy (understandable I suppose) is setting in when it comes to issues like Anglo

Exactly Digout.

FF's number one answer when asked on something along with - I cannot answer that until we have read the report.

FF have f**ked this country up. A disgrace to Irish Politics. I was talking to a member of the Irish Consulate in a European Country and he suggested that the behaviour of FF would not be tolerated in any other devloped western country in the World.

Wake up and smell the roses people.

If a number of us left Ireland, and went to another EU country, we could set-up a government in exile and inform both the EU and the UN. They have to recognise us.

If they are serious, it wouldn't happen this soon anyway. If the were serious it would be a small wheels grinding slowly job. But barring revenue investigations and murder inquiries (and the northern bank case) that doesn't happen.

My guess is that something will come of it though. Something that will allow ministers to bluff that something came of it. But nothing that anyone else would consider significant.

The Anglo 10 aren't the issue per se, there's deep criminal issues in Anglo ... getting to the bottom of them will take time

Fraud type trials in Ireland are notoriously problematic , one thing we need NOW is to ensure that these guys get a quality trial, an issue of huge concern to me is the jury

An "average" jury will have trouble comprehending the issues and defence counsel may well aim for a strategy of obfuscation ... also above average people get excused from jury service a lot

We need to ensure a crack jury for these guys ... and blunty put: they need to be pretty high IQ - I know of at least one criminal fraud trial in Dublin where obfuscation got the criminal off

Could we not find a decendent of the last high king of Ireland and take over that way. Some O'Neill guy who we could present to the media and have our own coup d'etat

Martin? Could work. Does well with limited resources, produces consistently good results. Jumps around a lot. Likable chap.

We need someone that is willing to force through the changes needed in 1) Education and 2) The Civil Service 3) Local and National Government. We have FAR too many politicians (local and national) for the size of our country....

At what level of promotion in the banks does the IBOA no longer represent staff? In other

words are managers and senior staff represented by this union.?

I notice that the IBOA are getting concerned about Irish Nationwide as they must now realise that its days are numbered.

Alan Dukes seeks conclusion of Anglo Irish probe

Dukes seeks conclusion of Anglo Irish probe

Former Fine Gael leader Alan Dukes has criticised the Director of Corporate Enforcement for delays in its investigation into Anglo Irish Bank.

Speaking at the MacGill Summer School in Donegal, Mr Dukes, who is a Director of Anglo Irish Bank, called for the investigation to be concluded as soon as possible.

He criticised the Director of Corporate Enforcement for the way his investigation has been carried out.

Mr Dukes said he found it odd that the Director of Corporate Enforcement said he may be in a position to tell the DPP there is a legal case in November, after he announced last February there was a prima facie case for an investigation into the bank and after sending people into the bank in April to begin the inquiry.

Currently, Anglo Irish Bank is involved with three separate sets of investigations by the Director of Corporate Enforcement, the Financial Services Regulator and the Chartered Accountants Regulatory Board's complaints committee.
Hmmmm. I'd be interested to hear Mr Appleby's reply (he's not due to speak at the conference in Donegal at all) before commenting further but what has sparked this from Alan Dukes?

Will we even get a scapegoat out of this?
