The two videos below have started doing the rounds on Facebuke and The Twitter. So if you haven’t seen them…
First up, an RTE report from March 2000 on an ERSI quarterly that was dismissed by Bertie Ahern and Charlie McCreevy. Brian Cowen also features in it; foreign affairs minister at the time, I think?
Secondly, LastTV, a programme on RTE back in 1998. They broadcast the hilarious – and pertinent – piece below on fractional reserve banking. It ends with “this could never happen here would it?” and a few lines on the default of… err… Asia. “Our banks are a lot more civilised though, aren’t they?”
I’m taking credit for finding that one first! Neh neh neh-neh nerrr.
