    It was all done on the best possible advice available at the time and the most expensive.
    Sure somebody has to be available to tell us when we get confused between a horse and a pig and then sell to the public as beef.
    No accountability whatsoever on a last minute deal that was already done.

    Bank crisis legal advice cost State €70m - The Irish Times - Tue, Jan 29, 2013

    Arthur Cox was paid some 32 million of this figure since 2008.

    When are we going to wake up in this country
    We are crying about cuts to schools and hospitals
    and still these people are getting paid a fortune by YOU

    we are a very ignorant people
    we deserve everything we get

    How much did Iceland pay?

    Why did we not switch to their advisors as soon as the penny dropped that 'we' had made the single biggest mistake in the history of economics?

    No advisor in the world was going to fix the following problem:

    -The country used to build 90k residential units p.a.
    -It now builds 9k p.a.
    -200k+ people directly and indirectly involved in this construction are now unemployed as a result of the collapse in construction.

    Wow. If only you had been able to give advice to Baby Brute before he invested in McInerney Builders, and CRH.....

    FG did not see any of the above either. And the Looper Party wanted to splurge even more than FFinished.

    No wonder they have no clue what to do.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.
