Hungry bankers can go hang -- sambos, that is

FIXING the mess at embattled lender Anglo Irish Bank is, naturally enough, hungry work.

But banish all thoughts of directors musing over dishes of foie gras and Beluga caviar at meetings.

Instead, it seems, it's a case of "Anyone for a 'hang' sandwich?"

The bank is now hunting for a gourmet caterer to deliver platters of sandwiches to its offices for meetings.

And as taxpayers count the €35bn costs of liquidating the bank, they can rest soundly in the knowledge that "Anglo prides itself on offering its customers a bespoke, efficient and very personalised service" -- that's according to the tender notice.

Anglo staff will be dining on the Celtic Tiger builder's favourite of the 'breakfast roll', sandwiches, croissants, pastries and fruit platters.

"Sandwiches and breakfast would be ordered for different sorts of meetings, from large board meetings to small meetings," the tender reads.

But it points out that anyone with prior convictions for corruption, fraud, money laundering or participating in a criminal organisation need not apply.
