There's a lot of Irish people that still think the rest of the world should have paid for the bad behaviour of our banks and the cowboys they indiscriminately lent money to. Britain too had to bail out their banks to the tune of 500 million. The difference is we needed to borrow to bail out our bad boys.

Funny, the money wasn't subject to a national identity until it went to hell.

If you make an investment in a private business (whether through bonds or shares) you make a profit which is your compensation for the risk involved - if the firm is successful. If it isnít successful, you generally lose your money. Unless you lent money to the banks.

And the banks lent the money to Fianna FŠil's builder and developer friends.

I don't give Quinnbet any chance at all. They obviously think the gambling industry is a soft touch. Big guns will swallow them up until they give more and more away to obtain their market share....until it's not sustainable any longer.

It takes a special kind of ego to still stick the Quinn name on your company after itís been ran into the mud many times over.

This about sums it up.  It's the insurance business model all over again.

Defeat in the Commons for May over Brexit bill. Some Tory's (sensibly) rebelled. Further obstruction and confusion to the situation.

What did we want him to do? Retire and do F All? Fair play to him. The Irish Govt tried to make him a scapegoat for all that was wrong with the Celtic Tiger. Ask around Fermanagh/Cavan what they think of him.

Firstly he shouldnít be trusted with any investorís money, and secondly he should keep his name as far away from the brand of any company heís running as itís as toxic as any asset in NAMA.

I donít give a fŻck what any Cavan or Monaghan lads think about him - heís as much of a gangster as the likes of Fingers and FitzPatrick.

Congrats Sean Quinn you've managed to hijack this thread...


No mention of yesterdays vote? Very significant IMO. Not for the bill itself but the fact that it now shows May she doesnt have a majority on Brexit

Shows the fine line she is threading, she saw off the Brexiteers and DUP last week and looking very powerful in the process, only to be blindsided by the Remainers this week

She looked scared of her own shadow.

None of this is surprising or even terribly note-worthy. The sooner this Tory government collapses the better.
