Denis O'Brien calls himself a proud Irishman and republican "with a small r". Let's take a moment to welcome that declaration. And now, let's invite him to waive his right to privacy.

Or, to put it another way, if Mr O'Brien was treated the same as everyone else by IBRC and has nothing to hide - why hide it?

Public confidence has been dented by the innuendo that he enjoyed a soft deal from the State-owned bank - favourable terms subsidised by taxpayers.
