    Default Anglo's fancy facelift will be paid for by us

    Apologies if there is a thread already on this.

    EMBATTLED Anglo Irish Bank is overhauling its image with a complete rebrand, paid for by the Irish taxpayer.

    The name change and facelift, which is set to be carried out by marketing consultants, is expected to cost hundreds of thousands of euro.
    The bank has invited expressions of interest to assist in the brand change for Anglo to "overcome the impact of decisions made in the past and to become a constructive component of a reformed Irish banking structure".
    A representative for Anglo has outlined that it does not have a budget in mind for the job, but analysts have indicated that a job like this could run into hundreds of thousands of euro.

    And Dublin-based Bradley McGurk brand consultants said that the rebranding could be a positive move for the beleaguered bank.
    "The Anglo brand has lost credibility," said Andrew Bradley, partner at Bradley McGurk. "They could be on to something, giving it a new name, and should be brave. They have to create a new image."

    Don't know about the name, but the logo should be a lovely golden circle to represent its status as the bank for the elite with a dark centre to represent the black hole that has sucked in 2 years of the HSE's budget.

    This is a huge insult to Joe Taxpayer - a bank he would never have been welcome in, which has cost him and his kids 5 - 10% extra tax throughout his working life now has to hand over the shekels so a bunch of banker wannabes get a second chance - close the fec*ing bank down and be done.

    Dunno about a new name but the last words it should contain are 'Bank' and 'Irish' - the only thing more toxic is the sea of Sellafield.

    Where are all the Anglotron posters here to defend this fine institute?
