Quote of the Day…

From David McWilliams:

Contrary to popular belief, the Irish banking and housing crisis did not start in 2008; it started in 2000 when the banks were allowed to go mad and the government used this credit windfall to fatten itself up and fuel the nonsense. All the while, the establishment bleated the “soft or softish landing” mantra while paying themselves fortunes.
