Sport sponsorship had no role in bank bailout

POLITICS and sport do not mix well and should be kept separate at all times. We all remember the controversy surrounding the English national anthem being played at Croke Park.

This is no different to bringing the question of sport sponsorship into the debate on a political decision to bail out banks.

We all know the banks were reckless and that there are many people to blame, but suggesting that the sponsorship of Bank of Ireland in some ways favours private schools with a rugbyplaying tradition is at the very least a farce.
