Today the state has been ordered to buy Irish Life for €1.3 billion off state-owned Irish Life & Permanent.
Last November we were told potential buyers had been scared off fearing reputational damage and fines arising from the hooky €7.2bn back-to-back loans by IL&P to Anglo.
A promised investigation by the Central Bank also posed a potential headache for our old friend Kevin Cardiff.
So, will today’s sale stop the probe?
Answers to the usual address.
