The discredited head of the discredited Central Bank, John Hurley, was on RTE (2nd report, 1st item) today blaming others for his incompetence.
Asked if he took any personal responsibility for what happened in the Irish banking system over the past year he said:
The international regulatory environment clearly has been found wanting and the rules in which regulators regulated in different markets clearly were inadequate.
Irish citizens are still waiting for an official, a politician, a banker, anybody to say – Yes, I’m to blame. I think they’ll be waiting.
