FG supported the original bank guarantee, and then came up witha pretty weak banking crisis plan last May. They keep flogging this meager 4.5 page Word document.
Now they claim George Soros, Professor Stiglitz, Dermot Desmond, David McWilliams, and Michael O'Sullivan support it:
Their plan was rubbished by Karl Whelan here, and on that same thread you'll see Brian Lucey hauling up Andrew McDowell on the detail of the plan (FG were very confused about what bonds were what). Andrew McDowell is of course an ex quangocrat (Forfás) and now as Fine Gael's chief economist is the author of their crazy banking plan.Irish Times
Fine Gael finance spokesman Richard Bruton welcomed the intervention of Prof Stiglitz.
"Together with George Soros, Professor Stiglitz is one of the prominent advocates of Fine Gael's 'good bank' solution to fixing the banks. He joins financier Dermot Desmond, commentator David McWilliams, and Michael O'Sullivan of Credit Suisse Private Bank, among others," Mr Bruton said.
Do FG have any proof that Soros,Desmond,Stiglitz & McWilliams specifically support their plan ? I haven't seen any, and doubt it exists.
