    Concerned about the upcoming NAMA legislation in Ireland he has built the site http://www.namasayno.com to explore information on the proposed legislation and hopefully so that he and others become better informed on the issues surrounding NAMA.

    Colm you should have a look at the this thread http://www.irisheconomy.ie/index.php/2011/06/11/patrick-honohan-on-vincent-browne/#comments

    To my mind, it looks like it was Honohan who decided Ireland needed a bailout and he concluded his ‘negotiations” before letting what he and Kevin Cardiff filter through to Brian Lenihan.

      Hi Robert,

      Honahan has been a disaster for Ireland. Because of his particular responsibilities as a member of the governing council of the ECB, he should never have had the role he was given in negotiating Ireland’s bailout. The fact that he was severely compromised I raise here as cbweb http://www.davidmcwilliams.ie/2011/06/08/too-much-regulation-will-stifle-our-banking-sector . Apart from that, his negotiating skills have been a disastrous embarrassment and continue to be so. I think they extend to travelling about Europe seeking support for Ireland’s position from the other 27 member states. How more disastrously pathetic is that? Could senior bondholders of Irish banks have a better friend? As regards Corporation Tax, his intention to make good on senior debt is only matched by his intent taxpayers will have to pay. He has guaranteed the destruction of the Irish economy.

      best

      Colm
