    Default This government is as spineless as the last Government.

    Or so says Brian Lucey, he of TCD and too many TV shows.

    Govt 'as spineless as the previous shower' over bankers | BreakingNews.ie


    Needless to say I don’t agree, I think this Government had taken spinelessness to an entirely new level, but be that at it may, the real question this raises is surely should we have to listen to anything Brian Lucey has to say at all?

    As an economist and as spokesman for the “46” back in the old pre NAMA days he managed to show us that he didn’t understand the difference between a bank asset and a bank liability, he told us we could sell the Anglo deposit book of 28 billion for a “discounted” 21 billion. A net profit of 49 billion, the man’s a genius.


    Why do we give people like him, with a record like his, any air time or attention at all?

    Which suggests you actually do believe the previous government were also spineless just not as spineless as this one.

    Pot......

    Anyway everytime a FF TD is asked about the crisis and how FG are handling it they immediately fire off 'sher aren't they just carrying out the plan we(FF) made with the Troika.

    Anyway I seem to remember you dismissing Lucey when he turned his ire on FF.

    You didn't read the post then and as usual missed the point entirely.

    In their dealings with the ECB and EU, particularly with Germany, they are so spineless I'm shocked any of them have the ability to walk upright...
