    Default Impoverished banksters flee cruel Ireland

    Reach for the violin, folks. Apparently, Ireland is no longer a nice place for banks and bankers. Michael Somers of AIB is decrying the regulatory regime that he claims is forcing banks out of the IFSC. He's also complaining that he can't good people for the Chief Financial Officer role due to the cap on executive pay.

    Cheer up, Mickey. Get on to FÁS and find some young lad with a FETAC Level 5 in Accountancy. He'd do a far better job than you and your ilk have done.

    My heart is bleeding. Here's a song just for Michael Somers :



    It's a pity him and his ilk aren't fleeing at the end of a bayonet.

    It's the "other side of the coin" argument, so distained by the black and whites on sites like P.ie, but always worth looking at on all issues.

    Specifically what issue do you have with Michael Somers? Which part of his management of the ntma do you think he handled poorly?
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    You mean major international employers leaving Ireland because of excessive regulation.

    I've spoken to several people who work in the IFSC over the past year who've told me that the Regulator and Central Bank are increasingly difficult to deal with. After years of light regulation, they've now swung too far the other way and over-compensating for past mistakes with clumsy, heavy-handed enforcement. And many of the banks are now walking.

    In addition, after the financial collapse and sovereign debt downgrade in Ireland, it's no longer a badge of honor to say that your fund administrator or custodian is based in Ireland and regulated by the Irish Central Bank.

    Northern Ireland - without forgiveness, there is dysfunctionality.

    Poor Seanie Fitz...as well.

    Seanie is a banker who likes to wear the Green jersey, and show up at superficial patriot events.
    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.

    The sense of entitlement from these scrongers is breathtaking. Good riddence you disgusting crooks.

    No he didn't, he wasn't involved with the banks at the time at all.
