AIB should cancel its marketing

I SEE AIB is running a campaign to advertise its sponsorship of the Irish Ladies Open. It has no money to run the company but it has money to sponsor golf tournaments. It even throws in that old tag-line "supporting clubs -- supporting communities".
Thanks to the way these leeches have screwed up the country, they are closing down the local swimming baths in Crumlin, but in Foxrock and Greystones they are "supporting clubs -- supporting communities". These guys have no interest in communities. And the only club they are interested in is the boys' club to which they belong. In a couple of weeks' time, all of the top banks, solicitors' firms and brokers will be sending tickets and hospitality for the Heineken Cup rugby final in Paris. They organise these little trips and call them "marketing".
My taxes have paid for AIB's "marketing" programme, which enables them to bring some wealthy stockbroker and solicitor to Paris on a boys' piss-up. If AIB really cared about communities they would cancel their marketing and pay to keep Crumlin and Sean McDermott Street swimming baths open.
