    Default Dept of Finance agrees another 500k + salary for new IBRC employee

    Report: Dept of Finance approves

    It is being reported that the dept of finance has agreed a 500k + salary for a new IBRC employee. This in the wake of Eamon Gilmores comments that he is opposed to such salaries for state lender employees

    It's not clear if minister Noonan authorised the new salary although one may be forgiven for assuming he did. If so,does this suggest a further breakdown between communications at senior govt level. One would have thought the lessons arising out of the OReilly debacle might have improved communications at this stage.

    Not to worry, it'll be FF's fault.

    I'm sure the government took legal advice that this was ok. That's always the answer that's giving, it could be wrong do, but don't punish the government

    The peasantry of Ireland are treated with disdain again by the overstuffed clerk of a Vichy government.

    Noonan and co are no different to Fianna Fail- their job description is to lie and obfuscate- if this was a 'business decision' then hands up who here would be handing out half-a-million euro salaries in a business that is so far in the red to the tune of many billions that it should have been closed down long ago?

    Either Noonan is a raging fool or a deliberate liar about the real status of that joke bank which is clearly no more than an SPV for exporting large sums out of the Irish economy.

    Either way Fianna Fail or Fine Gael it matters not- and the fact that some here seem to think it does means nothing but the reality is that Noonan and his FF cohorts supposedly in opposition are running the same scam on Irish taxpayers.

    'civil war politics' my hole. Noonan is a vichy clerk for the ECB and there must be uproarious laughter at the 'party politics' argument among Ireland's commentariat.

    Monkeys on a rock getting their backs shaved without even noticing. Watch the monkeys argue about who has the banana while the stripes appear on their backs one after one.
