Maidir Le: Lenihan: 'I fought the good fight'..was betrayed..'with hell at the gates'
Surely it was quite clear after the explosion in bond rates following Black Thursday that the state would have to either seek a bailout or unilaterally default? The only reason it wasn't done earlier is because Lenihan et al took a three month hiatus while the press focused on Larry Murphy and Garglegate and there was no mention of the banks from any government minister- just more rubbish about 'the public finances' and 'seasonally adjusted figures' when asked about the deficit and rising unemployment.

'Our goal is to conquer state power for the Irish working class'
Pat Rabitte, 1987
"Can I ask whether this is what the men of 1916 died for: a bailout from the German chancellor with a few shillings of sympathy from the British chancellor on the side?"
Michael Noonan, November 2010
