Mortgage help smokescreen

I'D like to comment on the fact that the banks are being told to implement the extension of the moratorium on mortgage arrears (Irish Independent, August 14).
I am livid that the media (and that includes you) haven't realised that this is obviously a smokescreen to deflect from the inability of the Government and financial institutions to come up with a realistic measure to help mortgage holders in arrears.
We are being fed bullshit by giddy reports about how this measure is going to relieve those in deep trouble and in danger of losing their homes. The media should wake up and stop being complicit in this obvious spin.
