Brilliant article by Fintan O'Toole in todays Irish Times. I strongly urge everyone to read the article in full.
O'Toole puts three questions to Brian Lenihan;
1. Where, exactly (with page and paragraph references), does Honohan express support for a blanket guarantee for Anglo?
2. Where, exactly, do Merrill Lynch support such a guarantee?
3. And, back to the original question: how much money for Anglo is too much?
I've heard both Eamon Ryan and John Gormley claim that both Holohan and Merrill Lynch supported the blanket bank guarantee which included Anglo. I now challenge Minister Ryan and Minister Gormley (or any other Green politician) to answer these three questions.
I wont be holding my breath.
