Morality – Haughey style

Fianna Fail TD Sean Haughey has asked the Bank of Ireland to hand over its historic former headquarters as a ‘thank you’ to the Irish people for the multi-billion bank bail-out (Sunday Independent).

Given the economic and banking crisis, I would strongly suggest that the time is opportune to negotiate with the Bank of Ireland for the transfer of the building to State ownership, given the bank’s undoubted indebtedness, both moral and financial, to the Irish taxpayer.

said Mr Haughey.

A Haughey talking about moral and financial indebtedness?

Perhaps, while he’s in this rare moral frame of mind, Haughey could arrange for the return of some of the millions that his criminal father robbed from the state?
