Celebrating a pre-season Ulster League like they'd won the Ulster Club wasn't a good idea.

Rate falling like a stone after the BoE Intervention . . . where the f**k is the Prime Minister FFS???? Surely she needs to be making some kind of an appearance?

My guess is they haven't a f**king scooby what to do other than admit they made a mistake and row back on last week's announcement. Fat chance of that happening though!

Wouldn't argue with #1. I have never heard of Atlanta in the Top 10.

I really like it. Very gritty with some real comedic moments definitely worth a watch!

My fixed rate ends in exactly 2 years. Expecting bad things, but maybe it will have settled down then.

Same as that. . . might have to increase the term to keep repayments down but fingers crossed things will settle at that stage!

Joyce won well but don't think he's anywhere near elite at that weight.

Has a granite chin, be interesting to see how he goes. Thinks he gives anyone of the top 3 a serious fight

Donovan lucky to get the win in Belfast tonight

Not sure he’s Championship level would have him 5th behind the big boys.

Looking forward to him taking on one of the big guns though. Hard to believe he was fighting someone 7 years his junior and was the one setting the pace of the fight. Parker is a certain level but is no dozer and has never been knocked out I hope Joyce can step up.

is tax cuts not good

Not if your currency takes a nosedive against the dollar… the tax gains that those earning below £150k have made are effectively wiped out in the weakness of the £ having to buy fuel in USD!

Usa thrashing the international team. It could get embarrassing this weekend.

The matches were fairly entertaining today and relatively close it’s a pity the Intl’s couldn’t have turned a couple.

Bananas... scrapping the 45p tax rate is blatant cronyism.

The Stamp Duty cut is blatant cronyism.

Scrapping bankers bonus cap . . . Scrapping the rise in corporation tax... all cronyism!

I could go on... the net effect of all the cuts is the increase in price we'll have to pay for energy given how much STG has tanked against the Dollar!!

by individuals in banks and potentially regulators... but my point is even with auditors, regulators etc. fraud and while collar crime exist and can unnoticed for years or never discovered...

If you read about fraud cases that have gone to court they’ve generally taken place over years and often decades.

So why weren’t the banks indicted as co conspirators?

individuals in banks can commit fraud, as can customers and so can individuals in regulators and auditors... they can also be negligent. there can be a combinations of those individuals can work together to commit fraud etc.

Regulators have fined banks many times, normally for breachs of regs. there will be a new senior executive accountability regime regulation being introduced in Ireland soon making it easier to take actions against individuals within regulated entities.. Michael fingleton would be a good example of someone who oversaw poor controls and governance in irish nationwide of you want to Google him.

I have had a securities license for close to 30 years

I have worked for companies that have been subject to SEC investigations and enforcement actions

The current head of compliance at our company is the former chief enforcement officer for the SEC

I cannot give someone a sleeve of golf balls or buy someone a sandwich without reporting it to compliance

I just don’t  see how inflating property prices when applying for loans and deflating them for tax purposes is a criminal matter. Every real estate developer on Gods green earth does it and has been doing it for centuries

goalposts moved... I  dont care about the soap opera that is  US politics, I just dropped in and saw this comment...

They’re essentially alleging that he pulled this off repeatedly, over several decades at numerous financial institutions (that are subject to all types of regulatory scrutiny by a plethora of federal and state agencies and auditors)

Doesn’t make any sense (to me)

Regulatory scrutiny by a plethora of federal and state agencies and auditors hasn't stopped white collar crime before so I don't see how it doesn't make sense to you that anyone could try and get away with it.

by the way you can buy a sleeve of golf balls or sandwich and not report it to compliance. there is nothing stopping you. However, if it's against your company policy or maybe financial regs too and you are caught you will like be in trouble.

Bank auditors and regulators (internal and external) for decades signed off on the valuations and underwriting for these loans-

Now all of a sudden these valuations are problematic.

I guess the chips will fall wherever they will in court, but every real estate developer in NYC must be quite nervous if this is the new standard to a prosecution

Watch The Big Short if you think that something like this can’t happen repeatedly over the course of a number of years with regulators and banks turning a blind eye to the practice… given the catastrophe we faced during the crash in the late 2000s none of this should come as anything resembling a surprise.

The banking system up until the point was a shambles and it wouldn’t be surprising if there aren’t some “legacy issues” around the big boyos like Trumper!!

catholic/nationalist/identifying as Irish does not equal voting yes for reunification

the status quo is the only game in town for the vast majority of the north  :-[

Another stunning contribution from you.

He's not wrong.

I think we'll need the next Census results before a border poll will be called or before we have a realistic chance of winning one!

Did the actual AG not complete a fairly exhaustive look into the Clinton Foundation only to find nothing?

Surely the State AG has found something on Trump and is bringing it to court??

Is there a huge difference?

So following that logic a local state (Republican) AG should now reopen that investigation and pursue civil charges (interesting)

Why would the investigation be reopened if it didn't find anything?

From my reading of it James has been investigating this for 3 years and is bringing charges based on what has been found?
