90379233Richie Boucher, Bank of Ireland CEO at Leinster House this morning.

This morning/afternoon

At the banking inquiry:

Mr [Richie] Boucher told the banking inquiry he knew on September 29th a “systemic guarantee” would be put in place.
He confirmed the position of his predecessor [as Bank of Ireland CEO] Brian Goggin that all banks would be covered by the Government decision.
This is in direct contrast to the evidence of Allied Irish Bank [CEO Dermot Gleeson] before the committee.
The chief executive also defended his salary of €843,000….
…Mr Boucher was asked about a letter he had written to Dublin City Council as Head of Retail about a property deal in 2007.He said that was a “mistake” and one of the “many stupid things he had done”.
It was a letter of support for a development by Sean Dunne in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

Good times.

    Oh my days, that suit is getting in the way of one fantastic streaker.

    Usual Rugger metaphors you always get from Bankers and their ilk, like they HAVE to let all their peers know they are of a certain set.

    Same with Doctors. Golf or Sailing.

    Some of us play rugby but don’t sculpt our entire being around a needy desire to be defined by it.
