Anglo Bosses In €22million Loan Shock – Emergency Interview Exclusive

It has emerged that eight long-standing managers at the now State-owned Anglo Irish Bank owed loans to the bank ranging from €835,000 to €7.1 million at the end of September 2008.

While most of the managers in question have chosen not to engage with the media over speculation about why they feel their ethically questionable banking activity is unworthy of public attention, one of the the senior managers did offer to speak off the record to a reporter from The Emergency’s Breaking News on condition that his anonimity was ensured. He did want us to point out that the interview took place in his new top of the range 09D Daimler, which purrs like a kitten, while he was on his way to work at the bank. The following is a transcript of the interview:

Q: How can you justify your borrowing this money at a time when Anglo Irish Bank was subject to a rescue attempt by the State which some say have precipitated the bankrupting of our nation?

A: Aaaaaa! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Oooooooooh! Ho ho ho ho ho ho hoo hohohoho ho….aaaaa! stop! Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee ahh!

Q: Do you not feel any sense of culpability?

A: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! ho….aaaaa! stop! Stop it! awww stop! Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee ahh! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Oooooooooh! Ho ho ho ho ho ho hoo hohohoho ho….aaaaa!

Q: What were the loans for broadly? Personal investment reasons or were you and your coworkers engaged in property speculation of the kind which has led to the establishment of NAMA?

A: NAMA! NAMA! Ahhh Jesus! You’re killing me! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! ho….aaaaa! stop! Stop it! awww stop! No! No! NAMAHAHAHeeeehee hee hee hee hee hee ahh! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Oooooooooh! Ho ho ho ho ho ho hoo hohohoho ho….aaaaa!

There the interview, which took place all the way to the bank from our anonymous source’s Foxrock mansion, ended. Our reporter was lucky to escape with his wristwatch and underpants, everything else having been demanded by the senior Anglo manager as “his due” for opening the central locking, and for “juice”.

Taoiseach Brian Cowen pictured warning that NAMA is not a bailout for corrupt bankers and developers. The Taoiseach will no doubt take a very dim view of today’s revelations from Anglo Irish Bank
