Inside the Anglo Irish - The secret tapes
The astonishing tapes show senior manager John Bowe, who had been involved in negotiations with the Central Bank, laughing and joking as he tells another senior manager, Peter Fitzgerald, how Anglo was luring the State into giving it billions of euro. Mr Fitzgerald had not been involved in the negotiations with the Central Bank and has confirmed he was unaware of any strategy or intention to mislead the authorities. Mr Bowe, in a statement last night, categorically denied that he had misled the Central Bank.
The plan was that once the State began the flow of money, it would be unable to stop. Mr Bowe is asked by Mr Fitzgerald how they had come up with the figure of €7bn. He laughs as he is taped saying: "Just, as Drummer (then-CEO David Drumm) would say, 'picked it out of my arse'."He also says: "If they (Central Bank) saw the enormity of it up front, they might decide they have a choice. You know what I mean?
I know there was a referendum on legislating for inquiries for instances like this but the sheeple voted it down, and voted no.
Now it looks like there will have to be another referendum, or the government will have to find a different way of going about this.
What really boils my blood on this, in another recording i was listening to on RTE radio, they were laughing and joking about what expensive Merlot to drink on their ''working lunch''..
Meanwhile they have by their callous actions destroyed the lives of many a struggling family etc, while laughing about it.
It really sickens me.There are families who cannot even afford to feed their children that have given them up to orphanages in Ireland in the 21st century.
Are these people going to be prosecuted with the full weight of the law ala bernie madoff,or will they get off with it.?
There no different to any other form of criminal they have show flagrant disregard for the public at large.
Your thoughts please.
