Faith in fantasy Nama

Madam – Happiness for many at Christmas time is the result of being too busy to be miserable! The past year has been a bad one, climaxed by the Budget, the most stringent in living memory.

The collapse of the economy and the demise of the mythical Celtic Tiger in 2007/08 psychically and emotionally left their mark, bringing to an end the fantasies and lavish living of many people. Hence, we had the establishment of Nama (National Asset Management Agency) to purchase unmanageable material losses and indebted property at a cut price. It was intended to ease the burden of those in bankruptcy and aid recovery.

This Christmas let everybody join an imaginary emotional and spiritual subsidiary of Nama. Despite all the ordeals, illnesses and trauma of the past year, we are still alive. Evaluate our good luck against those who went under and we will realise the many assets and true potential still left. Dump all our problems into the fictitious Nama – confident they will be in the capable hands of the Good Lord, the new chief executive who guarantees results, minus the aid of regulators or six-figure sums.
