Anglo Tapes: Wiseguys never cut out to be Goodfellas
The latest revelations are just like excerpts from an episode of 'The Sopranos'

It's an unreal world where a pinstriped suit meets concrete overcoat. This latest tape reveals just to what extent Anglo Irish Bank had morphed into a movie plot featuring a cast of pumped-up (not-so) wise guys scheming how to relieve the Central Bank of a large amount of loot.
It's like finding a lost episode of 'The Wire' or a deleted scene from 'Goodfellas', complete with an over-18 rating, given the frequency of expletives peppered throughout the dialogue.
