Not just a few bad bankers - Capitalism to blame
By Joe Higgins FOR SHEER brass neck you have to hand it to the members of the Fianna Fail/Green Party government. There was Minister for Transport Noel Dempsey, at the recent Fianna Fail Ard Fheis laying into the bankers. They used the Irish economy “as their own personal piggy bank” he declared. They were “money manipulators (who) endangered the economic survival of our people”. In short, they were guilty of “economic treason” doing more damage than anyone “except perhaps Cromwell”.
