Sinead Ryan: Mortgage holders' body and AIB an unlikely marriage but a good start
David Hall of the Irish Mortgage Holders’ Organisation is an avuncular kind of chap. Mortgage holders reckon he’s on their side.
The banks, on the other hand, regard him as a thorn in their side, an irritating voice pointing out the inconsistencies, hypocrisy and massaging of information inherent in mortgage arrears figures.
So, a tie up would appear inconceivable, yet today one was announced between AIB – the bank that considers one in five defaulters to be deliberately so, and people’s champion, the IMHO.
