Almost 36 hours after his appearance before the Oireachtas Finance committee, the governor of the Central Bank has shifted his position by agreeing to provide the gardai with the bank's analysis of why it believes there is nothing in the infamous Anglo tapes to warrant any new prosecution.

Patrick Honohan has obviously been surprised at the level of disappointment that was felt by the general public at his admission to the committee that he had only listened to the portions of the tapes which were revealed by the Irish Independent and the 'Sunday Independent' more than three months ago.

Politicians and commentators were surprised, and in some cases shocked, by this revelation.
