Thin White Duke has antidote to 'irrational elation'

ALAN Dukes was in fine fettle at the recent Irish Small and Medium Enterprises Association's glitzy annual lunch where he was the guest speaker.

The former finance minister and future Anglo Irish chairman revealed he was reading Matt Cooper's book 'Who Really Runs Ireland' which he described as a good antidote to any "irrational elation" people may be feeling about the country's prospects.

The Thin White Duke went on to make a few pointed comments about how his bank had renewed its entire senior management while others had left their boards almost unchanged; no names were mentioned, but one could see a certain amount of squirming at the Allied Irish Banks table just yards from Duke's lectern.
