    Default Brendan Howlin: Anglo investigation needs speeding up and a new inquiry into the banking cirsis is being considered

    In an interview with the FT this evening Howlin said he would like to see an early determination of the current investigations "There is an absolute requirement for light to be shone into that dark crevice because people are confused and there is a lot of misinformation about it.
    "We haven’t had a full explanation about who was involved, who made the decisions and who was advising on those decisions – and I do think that is necessary to get the full picture"
    Mr Howlin said he was reflecting on the referendum decision to determine whether it could be rerun with some changes to enable a parliamentary inquiry into the banking crisis to take place.
    He said there were also alternatives under consideration such as appointing a full committee of inquiry or appointing a high court inspector to undertake an investigation. He said any banking inquiry would also have to ensure it did not inhibit any prosecutions that may emerge from the investigation by the prosecuting authorities.

    If at first they vote the wrong way keep pestering them until you get what you want - Democracy, Irish style.

    He must be on pretty strong medication if he thinks there's the remotest chance of getting people to vote yes in the kind of referendum envisaged in the current climate.
    Apart from that, its a bit curious that he talks to the FT about this on the eve of a bank holiday weekend when the Irish media has knocked off for three days.
    There's no sign of this on RTE or the IT as far as I can see.
