His name is William McAteer, arrested this morning. Expect more arrests before the annual report next week, and prob a few more before we pour billions into it. Then back to silence again.

And Alan Dukes on RTE ten minutes ago, justifying "normal" pay increases for Anglo execs.

In the US bankers have taken massive cuts in salaries.

Alan Dukes, former FF TD reckons the staff had taken on extra responsibilities. Seeing as the bank no longer lends money, the first question I would have asked him is "Well Dukes, what are the extra responsibilities?"

Just wait till we have to pump billions into the bank of FF.

Alan Dukes was FG.

Alan Dukes was FG.

The Tallaght Strategy might have put that in some doubt.

Alan Dukes was FG.

He was a member of FG, but he was in reality an FFer. He kept that thieFF Haughey in power therefore facilitating Haugheys theFFt of over €80 million from the state.

Dukes now gets his reward, a nice plum job with Anglo, and one hell of a salary and expense account.

There are a number of separate investigations into Anglo, including probes by the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement; the Financial Regulator; the Irish Auditing and Accounting Supervisory Authority; the Garda Fraud Squad; and the bank's own review involving an independent firm of solicitors and including a senior counsel. Are they doing all these 'investigations' in tandem ?

Or are they all taking their time?

Can police cells accommodate three such big egos?

Not for the first time. I can't help feeling this is just a stroke, connected with today's unsecured bond payment.

Last time he was arrested it was at dawn 6:30AM - this time its 8:30AM - he was released the next day and a file was 'sent' to the DPP.... whatever that means

It is a phrase used in Ireland to convey an ominous sounding piece of drama- a bit like the 'dh-dah- DAAAAA' you hear in suspense films.

A parade gathers outside Garda HQ. The Bishop blesses the Holy File with Holy Water and says a quick mass for its safe delivery to the Director of Public Prosecutions. A small urchin is sent on ahead to warn the DPP that the procession is about to move off.

The Artane Boys Band strikes up a sombre tune and the Legion of Mary wave handkerchiefs as the gun carriage begins to move.... a child drops an icecream and a Garda car runs over a small dog.

When the Holy File is removed to the DPPs cupboard it may remain there forever if it contains anything that might make the Irish legal and political establishment look either foolish or bent- which invariably makes the Irish establishment look both foolish and bent.

Sometimes the sun comes out. Sometimes it rains. But democracy and the rule of law is served. A file has been prepared and sent to the DPP. A terrible bureau is born.

Trivial offences are tried before a judge with no jury and the prosecution is brought by a guard. For serious offences the prosecution is brought by the DPP. In the latter case the gardaí gather evidence and send it to the DPP who decides whether to prosecute and on what charges.

Unless the DPP puts the file on a shelf and neither returns it to the Gardai or processes it to charges.

In which case the operation of justice becomes closer to the Beckett drama- 'Rien pas' (nothing happens) and everyone just waits for Godot.
