It’s good to be back. And I’m delighted that Enda will be on the show too.
On a day that saw:
* three former Anglo executives sent from the Dublin District Court to trial to a higher court;
* the Central Bank named six banks for allegedly misselling insurance products to thousands of customers;
* the Credit Review Office overturned 96 cases where banks refused credit;
* Euro zone Finance Ministers launch the permanent EU bailout fund, the ESM;
is it any wonder tonight Vinny looks at women?
He asks the panel:
* Are women bearing the brunt of the recession?
* Is gender equality a priority for this government?
* Or do women have to wait? Again.
Well, words fail me; I’m just gob-smacked. Well, let’s look on the bright side. Vinny has his wish - Enda will be appearing on the show - well, kinda, sorta.

Update on ruserious:
I’m sure you’ll all join me in saying a big ‘thank you’ to ruserious for setting up the #VINB threads in my absence. Fantastic work there, rus - trying to show Norman’s efforts up again. Loved your bedtime stories every night about my ‘adventures‘, even though everyone on the thread knew I was looking after family affairs at the Bates Motel. Pity tv3 didn’t always let you know in good time what was on #VINB; however, you managed.
Good luck with your studies and we all hope it goes well for you in the exams. And, now that you’ve declared your intention to stay away until after the exams, if any of us see you on-site we’ll quickly run you.
