Those bluffing bankers are back

IRELAND is a nation living a lie. Lots of little lies, all together, build one big lie. Last week we saw all the supporting players of the big lie in action. The Government, the Central Bank, the Department of Finance, united in support of the biggest liars of them all. Bankers were carried shoulder high, back to the top of the edifice of liars.

This Sunday let us celebrate the return of the permanent government.

So you thought that the mandarins were the real power? Or maybe you naively saw the Cabinet as making the ultimate decisions? You even believed that the auditors would act as a check on the nation's bankers? You swallowed the canard that the Central Bank was reformed, ready to defend the punters' interests?
