    Default Off to a great start with Sean Fitzpatrick trial

    We're off to a great start with the trial of Seanie Fitz.

    Seán Fitzpatrick trial: Anti-austerity campaigners ruled out of jury

    Irish Times reporting that anyone who ever marched on Anti Austerity demos or were negatively impacted by the crash can't be on the jury!!!!

    I think you mean "can't" be on the jury.

    And fair enough, it's not cast iron proof of looperness, but it's getting to the point where it would be a fair bet.

    If they had any strong feelings about the banking difficulties that arose in the State or any strong feelings about the role of Anglo Irish Bank in that crisis, they should not act as jurors, he continued.
    The judge seems to think the jury should be made up of ACTUAL peers of Seanie Fitz - Greystones Golf Club member chums or the like, not the little people who have had to pay for the financial crisis.

    I for one hope he is acquitted. If so the state can try and recoup the 31 billion they pumped in to Anglo from the auditors. EY are trying to absolve themselves from their negligence by blaming Seanie.

    Surely better to have a free Seanie and a bankrupt EY than a jailed Seanie and EY laughing all the way to their next state contract.

    I think that is only right. I hope they can fill a jury.

    What about judges, barristers or solicitors who were negatively impacted by the crash?
    All great truths begin as blasphemies!

    Any judges benefit from lenient terms on loans and investments that suffered in the crash?

    Or indeed, who were known to Mr. Fitzpatrick and his associates?

    I said it years ago that it will be nigh on impossible to secure an unappealable conviction in any of these cases in Ireland. They should be tried elsewhere. Brussels, perhaps.
    History will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.
