14:15 – Kerry Babies case

29:11 – “Do you think you are well served by the female leaders in Ireland?”

37:25 – “I don’t take offence easily

Some swearing.

One walkout.

Good times.

    Well, you can’t say anything bad about the Credit Unions in her company, or the Central bank for that matter.
    Even when some of the CU’s have been found lending out of control and members private information being shared with private investigators. An obvious breach of data protection, but sure they’re your local friendly money lender. They’d never shaft anyone.

      Some credit unions were run by a bunch of fools with no clue what they were doing. It doesn’t take away from the fantastic central tenet of CUs though. They’re being very well run at the moment: they’ve pretty much weeded out all the chaff. I’m a big fan of CUs.

      Hello there Italia ’90
      Many thanks for your feedback.

      I must have missed the part when I ignored or forgot there are Credit Unions that let their members, and the movement as a whole, down.
      Maybe I was in the Froze at the time.

      For your information, and of course everyone else too, I am not a cheerleader for the Central Bank of Ireland. If it comes across like that I apologise, I can only put it down to lack of presentation skills.

      My current and recent mentions of the Central Bank are in one part to either answer a direct question, or to clarify a query.

      Secondly, my motivation for highlighting their dividends in recent years to the Exchequer was only to highlight an example that major State Institutions and Agencies that had failed and let us down can actually be turned around into performing entities.

      If it can be achieved by the Central Bank in under 10 years, then An Garda Siochana Irish Water, the HSE or another regular feature here, RTE, could do it too.

      Again I am only an Accountant in specialist practice, I do not promote myself as an expert on anything.

      Again, thanks for your feedback, I do take everything on board.

      A wee tip Johnny, if the convo is not going as you want then steer it back. Don’t worry about that Nessy wan, sure she could talk the hind leg off a donkey. Joke!

      When’s Shanya going to be on btw?

      1. Shayna

        It’s Shayna btw, Some Old Queen. I just watched, “On The Telly” – I do like the new timeline feature. The walking off on live tv, made famous by the Gibb Brothers is now extended to Johnny. Before watching, and also during, my money was on Vanessa. I love it.
        Shayna has had 3 invitations to appear, circumstances didn’t allow. She doubts there’ll be another invite. Neil and his sister, Ruth look amazingly alike, despite one having a beard. Johnny’ll be back, he’s great. “Preposterous” , as always holds it together.

          Hello Shayna
          You are right, John Ryan is the Maestro.

          Hopefully it won’t be too long before you make your own debut, and it’s really nice to note you love it, since I usually see myself here commenting in reply to critiques of the Broadsheet on the Telly series.

          Have a nice rest of your weekend.

    Vanessa, it’s great to have another woman on BSOTT, on a weekly basis. I do not appreciate your blind praise of Central Bank, kick in the stomach for many tbh, bury that in future, please or I’ll have to petition for your removal. Cheers.
