Letters to the Editor

Sir ­- Leo Varadkar said "it will take a long time for the public to regain trust in the banks" because of the tracker mortgage scandal. What trust?

No citizen in their right senses has ever had 'trust' in Irish banking, going back to the days before we realised a mortgage from them only meant we were ultimately paying double back to the banks when we wanted to put a roof over our children's heads.

When and where has trusting banks ever been known in Irish life as a given, prior to the Taoiseach's utterance? Not one of those responsible for illegally taking advantage of the customers will see the inside of a jail cell, or even a courtroom.
