    Default Fianna Fail TDs demand that Anglo be closed

    Front page of the Sunday Times today. I couldn't find a link, but I felt it was well worth a discussion. Sean Fleming and John McGuinness are both listed as being among the backbenchers in question.

    From the article:
    Fianna Fail backbenchers are to demand that Anglo Irish Bank be closed over six to 10 years in a challenge to Brian Lenihan, the finance minister
    It's good to see that at least some Fianna Failers agree with Fine Gael and Labour on this and disagree with their own Finance Minister.

    Further evidence as well of the massive divisions that are cutting through Fianna Fail right now on key policy issues.

    The rumors are that the commission only wants to allow "New Anglo" to be became a small deposit taker with very little new lending allowed.

    With only €10bn in good assets to go into "New Bank" it seems incredible that the government this plan could reduce the cost in any meaningful way.

    Big boys McGuinness (screwed anyway by bolting before time) and Fleming whose appearance on Tonight with Vincent Browne proved himself to be a diamond jackass with no appetite for discourse. McGuinness is supposedly the man who mea culpas when he's on the radio, a business man with a conscience and Fleming the former financial director of FF have their personal agendas to follow here. I'm sure Fleming knows where there's a couple of skeletons to unearth. In any case the markets will sort this out. Once again we have to rely on powers outside the Dáil to make changes that should have been made within the Dáil. If it weren't for the meeja we'd never get any answers.

    But can you imagine them on the doorsteps in 2012 (or sooner)?

    and Mrs Murphy replies......
    "So you did. But did you vote against the government??..or loose the party whip??...did you leave the party and become independant???........NO...you didn't...do you want to meet my DOG.?...I bought him as soon as the GE was called.... here Killer.....here boy...Mummy's got din-dins!!!"

    When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

    But instead they'll just vote for the nice man with the familiar rosette. And round and round we go.
