LISTEN to the voices on the Anglo Tapes. No German accents there. No English or American or French inflections. These are not foreigner bankers codding Irish people – it is our own kind cheating us.

So by all means, feel the rage. But bear in mind that it is Irish people swindling other Irish people, not sharp operators from the City of London or Wall Street sharks.

A ludicrously well-paid elite double-crossed the rest of the population, effectively dismissing us as the great unwashed. And they sprung from among us.
