Are You Satisfied?



This morning.

Minister for Finance Michael Noonan at the Convention centre, Dublin this morning for a Ireland Strategic Investment Fund event overshadowed by questions over the Denis O’Brien/IBRC/ Siteserv deal.


Minister for Communications Alex White has said it is not for him to say whether there should be an inquiry into the IBRC sale of construction company Siteserv to a company owned by businessman Denis O’Brien.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Mr White said he had not had an opportunity to discuss information obtained through a Freedom of Information request with Minister for Finance Michael Noonan.

He noted that the bank itself and its former chairman Alan Dukes had said the best deal possible was obtained and he had no reason to disagree.

    Labour need to come out on this matter. The FG-Denis O’Brien links over the last 20 years have been very worrying to put it mildly.

    He doesnt sound too confident, not a bullish as usual, and no quip…

    I feel sorry for him, those bloody General Elections always puts a bump in their stride

    If I could hop a hurl off his head
    It still wouldn’t make me feel better

    So the official government position is now: “Yup. It smells a bit, but we were busy at the time.” Jesus.

    I, for one, am ready to trust the bona fides of any FG minister looking into dealings between an FG government and DO’B. Nothing to see here, Broadsheet!

    In any case, we’ll get all the answers in 15-20 years when the eventual tribunal wraps up.

    Puppets on a string, they are nothing but dancing buffers between the overly powerful banks/International Business interests and the Plebs, ideologically opposed to siding with the common good when a conflict between their masters and society arises – Thatcher lives on in the heart of FG, they seem proud of that, which is horrific.
