    Default Dan McLaughlin Rides Again!

    Where has Bank of Ireland's one and only Dan McLaughlin been for the last 18 months?
    What a pleasure it was to read his latest views in last weeks Irish Times!

    It is good to see that the Irish Times, with all their current difficulties, can still maintain a sense of humour by including contributions from this wizard!

    Dan 'The Phoenix' McLaughlin rises from the ashes of our fundamentally sound economy.

    Is this a sign that NOW is the time to buy?

    I had a good old laugh myself earlier on today..

    I had reason to be sitting in a branch of AIB, and I picked up an in-house bank magazine, well was from Goodbody's stockbrokers.

    My eye was caught by the headline on the front cover outlining shares that Goodbodys were predicting were "on the rise", and were a "good time to buy into"..

    Lo and behold, one of the preferred shares was AIB itself... and I had a quick look inside to see what Goodbodys had to say about AIB's future prospects.. .

    When I looked inside.. AIB were listed at 8.90.. my eyes nearly popped out of my head.. so I flicked back to the front cover.. and it turns out it was the September 2008 issue.. 6 months old..

    I casually asked one of the staff what their AIB shares were worth today, and she smiled and said "Oh, I think they're back up around 60 cent.. thank God"

    Thank God ?????

    There f***ing chancers were talking them up at 8.90 six months ago.. they have dropped practically 90% since then... and the shareholders think "Thank God"...

    Is it any wonder people still vote for FF in this country ???

    Just listening to RTEs Today at Five and heard Bank of Ireland's Dan McLaughlin talking about an upturn in the property market.........
    'In spring the garden will grow' said Chauncey, the character played by Peter Sellers in the 1979 film 'Being There'
    This movie should be mandatory weekly viewing for the Board and all Senior Management in Bank of Ireland as long as the receive any state aid.
    Or maybe they should be forced to run a new series of '100 steps to better banking' with gardeners providing advice and guidance on how to run a bank.
