Watching the greatest swindle in history of this State
The people are right not to believe the lies they've been told about Nama, writes Daniel McConnell
Events of the last seven days tell us a lot about our country and the state it currently finds itself in.
We found out last Monday that we have all been sold a lie of huge proportions by our Government. The IMF last April warned that Nama would not resolve Ireland's credit issues as we had been led to believe. This is the latest of a steady stream of alarm bells which lead me to believe that Nama is doomed to fail.
And we also saw our Government stand idly by as Bank of Scotland (Ireland) axed 750 jobs because the institution wasn't of systemic importance to the Irish banking sector.
