    Default Vincent Browne last night

    Are Fianna FAIL going to turn on Paul Somerville now?

    Like they turned on the legend David McWilliams

    In the conference call to Bond Holders Lendahand "supposedly" said that deposits would not leave Irish Banks as " we are an island "

    Did he intend tolling the front entrances of all the banks and closing all the airports & ports to suitcases full of cash

    Paul needs to don the green jersey !!!!!! Stop making our future leader of Fianna FAIL out as a fool.

    Come on Hammer. Have you ever found a tenner in your jeans after they have come out of the wash.

    Mush.

    Lenihan knows what he is talking about. The man is a legend. FF knew what they were doing when they got Sisk to build that big moat.

    Wow 2 comments.

    Surely this must rank up there as the most incompetent statement ever made, this from a Belvedere genius that admitted raising the Vat rate to 21.5% cost us 800 million :0

    Has he not heard of internet banking and electronic transfers or does he think everyone goes round with big briefcases of cash? You don't even have to get out of your chair to transfer funds.

    Oh, yes, I forgot. Just as all the best people are in NAMA, the creme de la creme deal in cash following in the great tradition of the movers and shakers in our travelling community.

    Kind of disturbing to see how emotional Paul Somerville got on VB last night.

    It sort of mirrors the general air of desperation/panic that has set in over the last few weeks.

    His remark about the minister calling in the ESB ceo and instructing him to come up with a plan to reduce electricity prices is interesting in that it is the completely obvious thing to do in the sort of crisis we are in.
    The frustrating thing is that even though everyone knows that it should be done, they also know that it won't be done because they are such a powerful vested interest.
    I know the regulator recently ordered them to reduce their payroll by 5% but they will probably dish out a few juicy redundancy/early retirement packages to get around this.

    I'm wondering why no journo has ever done an in depth look at the ESB payroll setup. I have a few relatives in there and the salaries at all levels are astronomical. The expenses, allowances, lump sum payments etc... would make a TD green with envy.
