“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.

Hmm. Businessman Ulick McEvaddy described the Anglo 10 - the 10 businessmen who bought Anglo-Irish shares with money borrowed from Anglo-Irish - as "heroes."
