    Worth a re-read.

    Fintan O'Toole: The corruption of Irish banking goes back 30 years
    The betrayal of basic ethics goes so deep only the criminal law can root it out

    DIRT was tax evasion by 'ordinary' bank customers. Yes, nudge nudge wink wink the banks were complicit and even encouraged the practice of false 'non resident' accounts. It was suggested to me by local bank counter staff that I set one up, and I turned down the offer.

    The Anglo Irish debacle was something on a completely different scale and of different character. It was perpetrated by the bankers, for the benefit of the bankers.

    Our "Anglo Irish Timeline" thread shows that how far back that scandal went - as Anglo Irish was the outside layer of a babushka doll construction within which were concealed the fetid remains of the Ansbacher Bank.

    He will get credit for his five and a half months in the US.

    Anyone expecting the judge to reach for the black cap when sentencing someone like Drumm was sorely mistaken.

    But remember, we are told there's no such thing as class division in Ireland.

    I'm a bit taken aback at this, I thought you were smarter than that.

    Drumm is not from a "golden circle" background or anything close.

    I am not defending him, but he has been treated much more harshly than most white collar criminals.

    Both sentences seem harsh, given the much higher level figures that have been let off the hook.

    I said there's a class division, not a caste system.

    Whatever his family background, Drumm very much became part of the 'golden circle'.

    You are right on one point though, he has been treated harsher than most white collar criminals...
