I’m shocked, shocked I tell you, to see the Anglo Irish executives getting off scot free for their crimes.
Ah no, I’m only joking. Here’s what I wrote April 22 last.
The two former directors of Anglo Irish Bank who were found guilty of providing illegal loans to ten businessmen to buy shares in the bank could face up to five years in prison.
William McAteer and Pat Whelan will be sentenced on 28 April next.
Will they sent down for five years? – definitely not.
Will they get four years? – No.
Will they get three years? – No.
Will they get two years? – No.
Will they be thrown in the slammer for 12 months? – No.
Six months, anybody – No.
A month? – No.
A week? – No.
A day? – No.
Maybe community service and a small fine – maybe.
