If dreams were lightning, thunder was desire, this whole place would have burned down, a long time ago.
Just after being reminded, isn't it interesting that the Mail got both the incriminating tapes and extensive statement from Quinn this weekend
Won't it be interesting to see how not easy Quinn finds it to sue Anglo Irish / IBRC under circumstances.
The Tom Browne case is back in October as well, as far as I remember. He wants to subpoena more or less the entire former Anglo management.
Browne, as a former exec claims that he was deliberately kept in the dark about the real state of the bank when he was lent money to buy shares in 2008.
How's is it going to work if his case coincides with the cases against McAteer and Whelan?
Judge Kelly pulling no punches in his scathing comments on the antics of the Quinns.
Junior will have his appeal heard by the Supreme Court in early October.
Quinn asset scheme was the most devious plan judge had seen

national and international fraud
scheme of mesmeric complexity,
reeking of dishonesty
Yet the courts are not being utterly ruthless with these guys! Three months in the Training Section of Mountjoy is akin to a 3-month course with Irish Times Training ... and at Irish Training you only get a free copy one newspaper (Irish Times)
Perhaps the 3-month incarceration is meant to be akin to the 'short, sharp shock' dished out to vomiting teenagers but considering the judge's words, 3-months is nowhere near punishment enough.
Give me a misty day, pearly gray, silver, silky faced, wide-awake crescent-shaped smile
courts are non existant or far to slow here had it been America they all would be inside doing very long stretches, solicitors are deepening their pockets now
The sentence is a reminder of what happens if you do not purge contempt.
Although not a betting man, I'll put down a ton, that if the Quinns do not purge the comment, the three months will become years possibly multiplied by three and certainly by two when they are deemed guilty of the array of offences involved in the breaking of the court order.
Still together with Seanie, Brooks and Coulson it has been a great week for citizens.
Andrew - Those words coming from a judge indicate a severity beyond that doled out to "vomiting teenagers" is rightly coming down the line.Perhaps the 3-month incarceration is meant to be akin to the 'short, sharp shock' dished out to vomiting teenagers but considering the judge's words, 3-months is nowhere near punishment enough.
Need to check with a legal person - but I don't think the three months is an actual "sentence" but merely a "finding" of being in contempt.
As far as I know, there has been no "sentence" as there as been no finding of guilt.
That, perhaps, will all come later.
But judging by the unprecedented use of language by Judge Kelly, you can pretty much rest assured that it will come.
And when it does, as I said above, I imagine it will turn out to be proportionate to the anger felt by the public - many of whom seem to be misunderstanding what is currently going down re contempt.
