ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet told Finance Minister Brian Lenihan: 'Save your banks'.
RTÉ Business: NAMA decisions driven by pragmatism - Ahearne
Seems strange that a person whom none of us elected ECB chief Trichet should tell us how to spend so much money that we don't have.
Where did he expect that we would get the money required?
How were we to pay it back?
Were we to pay it back in full?
Are we to pay it back at all?
Did he know how much would be required to "save the banks" at the time he gave the advice/ direction?
Did he favour the bailout of bondholders?
Should he appear before any Banking inquiry?
