Mistakes were made

AIB former chairman disavows any responsibility:

SERIOUS MISTAKES were made in Irish banking in the course of the current crisis, former AIB group chairman Dermot Gleeson SC has told the MacGill Summer School at Glenties, Co Donegal.

... “As a former Chairman of AIB the first thing for me to say in plain and unvarnished language is that some serious mistakes were made in Irish banking and there is absolutely no getting away from that,” Mr Gleeson said.

And who exactly was responsible for making those mistakes? Gleeson evasive language is fooling no one (at least I hope so). Take responsibility man, and admit you fucked up.

On another note: arrests? prosecutions? Where are they?

hmm. The lack of arrests is worrying. I don't know why this is the case. In the US we would have seen lots of 'perp walk' candidates at this stage. Michael Lynn, the solicitor that flitted the country while still owing 80 miollion has been convicted, but I'm not sure what the punishment was?

The only people who go to jail in this country are the poor. FFers do not go to jail because they're got friends in high places.

Brian Lenihan and Sean Fitzpatrick belong behind bars, to name but two.
