Hmm. Businessman Ulick McEvaddy described the Anglo 10 - the 10 businessmen who bought Anglo-Irish shares with money borrowed from Anglo-Irish - as "heroes."
“I think they’re heroes to have supported the bank in its hour of need,” he told RTÉ Radio. “We’re in an economic war and if we don’t have a good, solid, stable banking system, we’re going to be in serious trouble.”
I wish I'd heard the interview McEvaddy gave RTE because the most obvious question in the world is, "If they were heroes they'd pay back the €300m, right?" All they look like right now are people who were willing to engage in subterfuge in the hope of getting a payday at the end of it.
