    Did Bev have any shares in Anglo, I wonder? There's surely something wrong with a bank exec giving a TD confidential insider information that could influence the bank's share price.
    Did she share the information with others?
    An earlier email to Ms Flynn on November 5, 2008 thanks her for meeting him that day.Mr Moran sends her a briefing note on guarantee schemes and capital support by states for banks prepared by BNP Paribas indicating that this was what they had been discussing earlier that day.
    In another email, he sends Ms Flynn internal Anglo projections that the bank will make €10.2bn between 2008 and 2013 and lose only €340m because of the credit crunch.
    These figures are "actual but not yet released to the market", Mr Moran tells "Bev" before telling her to be "prudent" – the bank might lose only another €150m on top of its projections.
    "Thanks Matt, Bev," the politician replies.

    So Enda was feeding titbits of supposedly confidential information to Anglo. A couple of questions come to mind. Was Enda, as leader of the opposition, getting confidential briefings from the government on banking policy at the time or was he just passing on gossip?
    Certainly any news about government plans re Anglo was price sensitive and could have allowed insiders to profit by speculating on Anglo shares.
    It would be very interesting to examine how Anglo shares moved up and down during the period October 2008 to 15 January 2009 when it was nationalised.

    That story was out there for them like low hanging fruit had they cared to visit either the Shell to Sea or the royaldutchshell.plc websites any time in the last 3 months.

    But Oireland Inc. doesn't go for hanging their own.

We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts."

    Yep. Knew I had read something about it recently but certainly not in the Irish media.

    Looks like Danske isn't taking any prisoners..
    Fine Gael TD Frank Feighan is attempting to sell off a number of his assets in an effort to resolve a legal action taken against him by Danske Bank.Feighan, a Roscommon-based politician, toldThe Sunday Business Post that he was attempting to sell a restaurant in Patrick Street, Boyle, Co Roscommon to help pay down his debts to the Danish owned lender.

    The bank lodged the proceedings against Feighan in High Court in the past two weeks. Danske is seeking to secure summary judgment against the Fine Gael TD.

    Feighan met with the bank on Friday last with a view to working out an agreement. He said he was "putting proposals to the bank" about selling off assets.

    Feighan said that his difficulties with Danske Bank were sparked when his business loan was taken off interest-only payments, meaning he was liable to start repaying back the capital sum.

    Cliff Taylor in the Biz Post reckons that the new Financial Regulator will be from overseas. Apparently there are two names left in the hat neither of which are well known in Ireland.
    But..but what about Ann Nolan?

    Jeeze, hard to believe yer man is still alive. Can you imagine the RTE lock down of mourning we'll be enduring when he finally shuffles off?
