Let's try again....
The AIB are paying an ex-CEO, famous for saying he'd rather die than see his bank bailed out, a pension of €500k from a bailout fund. Besides the irony of this individual's apparent volte-face on dipping his beak into the bailout fund, what does it say about our governments sincerity when it comes to actual "austerity".
AIB uses pension bailout to pay ex-chiefs up to €500K - Irish, Business - Independent.ie
The CEO in question was firmly at the helm when the bank steered its shareholders and tax payers into the rocks, but it seems the concept of a captain going down with his ship is reserved for the "little people" and in fact not only did he allow his passangers go down with the ship he hopped aboard a luxury cruiser going the other way, waved a cheery two finger salute to the crew and sailed off into a life of tax payer funded luxury.
So - to my government - phuck you!!!!! Next payday when you dip your pockets into my pay to protect the vulnerable all I'll be able to think of is that it takes more than ten families like mine to work hard 6 days a week to pay enough tax to fund Mr ex-CEOs pension.
