Lenihan has some explaining to do

Speaking at the Michael Collins commemoration ceremony in Beal na mBlath, Finance Minister Brian Lenihan said he understood the public "incomprehension and anger" at the vast sums of money being pumped into the banking sector, particularly Anglo Irish Bank.
I doubt if public anger at the vast sums of money being pumped into the banking sector, especially into Anglo, can be lessened, at least until all those responsible for the mess we are in, including members of the present Government, have been punished for their actions.
However, public incomprehension might be reduced to some degree if Mr Lenihan ignored the requirements of the international banking fraternity to keep everything secret, and explained to the public exactly why Anglo had to be bailed out at such huge cost.
