The prospect of Sean Dunne walking away from his debts to the Irish people is such a travesty of capitalism and society that the government would have to respond....maybe by taking away his passport, his citizenship, something?
That Sean Dunne, whose ego drove him onwards to be the caricature of the Irish developer and paying stupid money for property long fare the smart money had gone elsewhere, is likely to walk away leaving somewhere between €500m and €1bn debt behind is beyond the typical joke played on the Irish people by so called capitalism.
He seems to confuse income tax with loan repayment and confuse having to employ people to do his work as philanthropy. He's claiming to be bankrupt while paying €20k a month in rent while people who bought his properties are being lined up by the banks to survive on €30 a week.
Surely our leaders in government would see fit to withdraw his passport and make it necessary to face Irish law as opposed to allowing him seek a better, faster, deal in the US courts....surely they're more interested in the well being of the Irish citizen and tax payer...right?
