'We will insist on the highest standards of transparency in the operation of NAMA, on reduction in the costs associated with the operation of NAMA, and that decision-making in NAMA does not delay the restoration of the Irish property market." -- Towards Recovery: Programme for a National Government 2011-2016.

The revelations at the National Asset Management Agency this week would suggest the Government has failed in that commitment.
