    What was uncovered by the Beef Tribunal concerning Goodman International was dreadful.

    And this was the company that Fianna Fail wanted to bail out too.

    And it's worth recalling they recalled the Dail in the middle of August to rush through legislation to save Larry the Good.

    When Anglo's share price crashed, the drunken Oaf and St Lenny took a long relaxing holiday, resulting in Tonic's favourite guarantee.

    Thanks for the information concerning this Tribunal attendee.

    Hopefully people will know more about him, and his businesses. And hopefully, greater public knowledge will enable people to choose competitors.

    Actually, it is the contention of some people, that there was a more there to be discovered, if the Tribunal made the effort.

    For the moment set aside who bought the building and ask yourself the question - would you rather the banks didn't sell any of these many such assets located all over the country? Would you rather have the banks hold the bad loans/assets and do nothing and "hope" that in 10 years time prices will have recovered?

    Wasn't he bending over forwards for Goodman?

    Keep meaning to check out EB's book.
