The man is collecting €120,000 a year for sitting on his hole and a €1000 a day bonus if he gets off it for a couple of hours.
He deserves every bit of contempt and abuse going his way.

Who do you mean, Higgins or Spring?

What always astonished me about the Labour Party was that it purged the Trotskyist "infiltrators" (Militant) and then allowed itself to be taken over by the Stalinists. (DL). They claimed that Militant would have destroyed the Labour Party.....they seem to have done a perfectly good job themselves, with DL figures to the fore in the omnishambles.

I think Joe Higgins would have enjoyed this little exchange!

And Spring seems to have sat on more boards than a carpenter!

The poor man has a bad back so he rarely sits on his hole.

I don't think Spring will lose any sleep after that mild skirmish. There's plenty of ammo there to hit AIB, but Higgins seems more concerned with point scoring.

How exactly is he a poor man ?

Is he spending money like Gerry Ryan did once ?

There are lots of serious questions about AIB. Like how much will it eventually cost to bailout AIB (this time).

Higgins had little to say yesterday, so you probably have a point. Higgins is probably trying to score a few points.

Spring wont be too concerned about a lunatic like Joe. Joe will never be taken seriously by anyone.

Hmmmm...and those who led us into this economic and social disaster and those who administer the poisonous "cure" are what?

Remind me again of the policies and parties which have led and now lead us us to such a "serious" and "non-lunactic" state of affairs.

Joe Higgins is a lunatic. Next.

As opposed to Lunatic and former FF man joe walch .who sat in the same chair as Spring telling even bigger lies ??
The only public interest Joe Walch served is his own Bank balance Typical FF Gangster.

The biggest problem with Joe Walsh was that he did not tell anything.

He just "Neary'ed" his way through the questioning, completely avoiding the questions.

Did he answer any question ?

He should be sacked for being useless ?

Can we start a website to impeach Joe Walsh from his BoI directorship for being useless and unaccountable ?

Same applies to the others also.

Another stellar and well thought out post by johnny 365, this time saying that ''Joe (the public representative) will never be taken seriously by anyone'', not even by the people who voted for him! Another display of keen insight carried out by johnny365
