Sir -- On Thursday March 31, 2011, our Central Bank governor Patrick Honohan said "it doesn't score highly on fairness". Well there is a word I have not heard in a long time, fairness, a word that was clearly never in the minds of the previous government and a word that has been quickly forgotten by our new Government.
Fairness in Irish society seems not to exist at the moment. Seventy thousand million euro is the cost of this bank bailout! Remember Brian Lenihan when he said "this will be the cheapest bailout in history? Well, Brian, this has turned out to be one of the most expensive bank bailouts in history.
The burden of this bailout is to be carried on the shoulders of the Irish taxpayer, the ordinary hardworking decent people of our society.
