A joint party inquiry into events surrounding the collapse of the Irish banking system started this week. It’s expected to run for a year, with total cost estimates conservatively put at around €6 million. What do you think?
“Six Million? Sure they could have a house on Shrewsbury Road for that.”
(Kevin Burke, flyer distributor)
“Yeah but what if in the end, the inquiry absolved us of any liability for what private banks blew gambling on the U.S. real estate market? You have to see it as a potential €80 billion return on a €6 million stake. It’s what the pros call a value bet.”
(Christine Linehan, ticket machine emptier)
“Six million seems like far too much to be spending on a joint party. Even a year-long one.”
