Institutions that talk rubbish
Sir ‑- Gene Kerrigan is right when he says the media 'should talk about it' when the Taoiseach is talking rubbish [Soapbox, July 5].
This point needs to be especially emphasised when we remember that the government and the financial institutions were talking rubbish during the whole decade of the boom right up to the day the Troika arrived in Merrion Street to bail out a country that could not pay its way.
Back then, apart from a very small number, neither media nor academia said anything apart from agreeing with what was happening. That should not be repeated. So congratulations to Gene Kerrigan.
