Maybe the man has said volumes in this interview with his thoughts on the subject.
Marian facilitated him.

Id say was fascinated by him. Shes on a "millionaire adoration" jag the last few months. Lightweight in the extreme. Anybody with any basic knowledge of the issues woul have gutted him. Patsy mcGarry did a decent job but hes not on top of te issues.

He was pulled up by another contributor, the IT's Paddy Agnew. He was talking a load of guff though.

I was listening to Newstalks morning show before Marian came on and celebratory lawyer Gerald Keane was surprisingly insightful about the whole banking mess. He also called, quite rightly, for the regulator's head.

The really funny thing was all of the texts that came flooding in saying that Keane was standing up for the little people. Still though, apparently it is possible to have an unjaundiced view on things, even from an ivory tower.

While over on NewsTalk, Karen Coleman allowed Dick Roche to witter on for 30 minutes about how evil the banks were (at last something for the politicians to look down on!). She didn't once question why his government hadn't tightened up the law, beefed up the Fin Regulator and stopped fuelling the property market through its own incentive measures.

More radio lite. Shes great on color pieces not on news. As the piece in the times from the TCD guy on saturay said, there is a sense in this governemnt that someone should do something

I'd have to disagree. She's great with all kinds of interviews.

Her recent interview with Séan Fitzpatrick is probably the most podcasted item on the RTE website at the moment.

Wasn't it Ulick McEvaddy who said he was on numerous boards and "he couldn't possibly know all the people on the boards".

I think that statement typifies everything that is wrong with boards in Ireland.

The vast large majority of the non-executives in Ireland carry out no oversight of the company executives.
These people don't even know the names of the others on the boards they belong to yet they expect us to believe that they know the companies!

Boards in Ireland are little more than another old boys club where members advance their own personal interests.
We have bankers on the boards of development companies/authorities, developers who are major shareholders in banks and politicians getting gifts from developers. The system is rotten from top to bottom.

One word sums up people like him- libertas
Does he ever discuss what planes in the employ of CIA etc use his refuelling services? Or whether they are involved in rendition flights?

Nearly a decade later and here he is, still on Finucane's panel.

Any chance of them getting people from outside the bubble onto these shows?
