Awfully sorry all, no time to make a proper #VinB thread tonight.

On #vinb Richard Curran, Elaine Byrne, Tom Lyons, Patsy Mc Garry & Deirdre O Shaughnessy @ 11 on 3

No idea what it is about. TV3 didn't bother saying. I'm sure it will be good.

Update on Norm: Norm found Redfly and read out the list of changes demanded. Mission accomplished.

I have a life.
There's bound to be a discussion on the low morals in Irish political office.

Probably something abouth the ex-pope and a rant about inequality and why the next pope should be a one legged, Black, half-blind, Roma, traveller, pro-abortion Labourite from the Third World. Meanwhile, the nation turns its weary head to the remote control and mutters "who gives a f*ck!". :)

Correct me if I am wrong in the thinking...
But as Fingers decided to lend to developers only
Then as soon as a new property is sold then he gets paid in full for that portion of the deal
So his exposure is limited to the period between the developer buys the site and the house is sold
So nowhere near the exposure of a mortgage lending bank who are exposed for the next 23/30 years
It seems like far less risk than the mortgage lending bank

Vinnie outs himself as a one-time Nationwide mortgage holder, just as Elaine Byrne was waxing about hacks getting cosy mortgages there when nobody else would give them one. Awesome.

Don't know Captain, but it's boring as hell, followed by the pope. God. Beam me up Scotty.

This is an interesting aside.
Fingers was not just giving out preferential loans to FF/PD heads but also to journalists.

It appears Fingers was politically well connected,a pillar of society,awarded a €1,000000 golden handshake on retirement,and a gold watch of his choice.I believe he still enjoys the odd game of golf,both at home and abroad.Only in our very own banana republic could we allow this to happen.And like fools the ordinary taxpayer is picking up the tab for this excess.
