Have you paid back €20m to bank, Mick?

Mick Wallace TD has, predictably enough, chosen to air his thoughts on the Fiscal Treaty in his own inimitable style.

A huge pink poster, displayed over premises in the Italian Quarter that Mick the Builder was instrumental in constructing, urges everyone to vote No, claiming that it is "A treaty for banks, not for people".

This, of course, highlights the fact that we wouldn't need the treaty if Irish banks hadn't run out of money in the first place, by lending to property developers who didn't pay it back.

Which prompts me to ask Mick one simple question in return.

That €20m you owe ACC Bank... Have you paid it back yet?
