Here are some internal Dept of Finance documents on the move of a senior civil servant from the Department of Finance to Bank of Ireland.
Michael Torpey, who was employed on a salary of €200,000-plus annually, was transferred to the NTMA for three months and told not to work in his area of expertise – as part of a ‘cooling off period’.
He was asked not to return to his desk after Christmas because he had agreed to take a job in Bank of Ireland and was instead dispatched to the National Treasury Management Agency where, despite being an expert in banking, he was forbidden from working on any matter relating to it.

Here in Ireland this covert robbery is well under way as the X premier Ahern and his insider pals study the “For Sale Menu” of Irelands silverware .Rumuors of Irelands forests being flogged off as well as the ESB and the Irish sea ports along with the various national routs for privatized tolls ,the list goes on and on! The citizens of Ireland are been sold as consumers of all sorts of fines ,fees and users of services from water ,phone to medicines .The public are just a resource the government can flog off to collect new stealth taxes . how long will it be before the people have had enough???

Questions have to be made about Irish Bank practices during the so called housing boom and you don’t have to be a genius to figure out that the banks took shortcuts that are still been hidden from the unfortunate clients/victims of the corrupt banks .Why should the mortgage holder, who is now nursing massive losses, now have to pay for the ( at best )incompetence and in so many other cases downright fraudulent practices by the banks and their agents???May I remind everyone not one banker has come before the courts and in fact all of the disgraced directors are enjoying lottery pensions and we the downtrodden taxpayers are footing the bill for their millionaire lifestyles.
Where is the justice we are guaranteed by our constitution?? if corrupt politicians, union bosses and bankers can exploit the resources of our country and impose austerity on the rest of us?
Wake up citizens of Ireland! Fight back !
