It is unusual, I know, but I am at a loss for words.
Captain Peacock [of commenter fame] sent a couple of links over the weekend. He included them in a comment, but I thought they needed a wee spot of highlighting.
They are both to the highly regarded site of Guido Fawkes.
Now normally, Guido has his cross-hairs aimed firmly at the Houses of Parliament in the UK, but during the week, he turned his attention to Anglo Irish Bank.
Now we all know that Anglo is the bank that has destroyed this country, with a little help from our government. It was a bank run by crooks with no regard for anything except greed and profit. As Guido points out, they were ripping off their customers long before they went bust.
There has been a lot of talk as to why we are bailing out this utterly corrupt institution. It is costing us, our children and our grandchildren. It has brought Ireland to the brink of bankruptcy. Why the fanatical determination of the part of our government to put the country in hock for generations?
Guido’s second article gives us a clear insight as to the probable reasons. It explains why Europe is so happy with the bailout, despite causing us financial ruin. It explains why Cowen refuses to listen to reason. This is the reason we will be in debt for many years to come.
As I say, I am at a loss for words.
If it is true, and it is too plausible not to be true, then Cowen is guilty of nothing less than treason.
