Ireland's Former Richest Man Has £4.4Bn Fortune Wiped Out

Recommended Posts

I thought Eire was like the UK where you could declare yourself bankrupt and a couple of years later get your flake loving wife to buy a multi-million pound house.

He was a property developer... and an insurance man... Does this mean people in Eire are not insuring their cars?

This thoroughly warms my HPC cockles.

For what it worth this is the fate that should also have befallen most of the banksters, but as we know they got bailed out.

Oh to see the Goldman Execs in jail taking it in the shower.

There's a familiar acronym in the Irish media to sum up one's disbelief at how far corruption can go: GUBU - Grotesque, Unbelievable, Bizarre, and Unprecedented.

It dates from the '80s, when Charles Haughey was prime minister. Turns out he was an amateur!

Have a look at this thread on the Irish propertypin - the hilarious bolloxology of a small property developer in the west of Ireland when things went tits up. It has the Great Wall of Furbo, contempt of court, transfers of funds to "the wife". Ends with a photo of a ferry boat crashing into the water when the bailiffs try to lift it out of the harbour. And there's more to come.

The seven circles of Hell, but all the demons amusingly dressed as leprechauns.

Don't get too excited about these people losing everything....when they say they have lost everything...it aint like you and me losing everything...

It's like they have lost the Lambourghini the multi billion dollar company and the private jet....but they are still rich beyond anyones widest dreams and still will never have to work again in their lives...this is all so much toss for the masses to make them feel better...He's probably got more money stashed in a Swiss bank account than the gdp of Ireland

Fortune wiped out ...so what...plenty more where that came from......These people walk between the rain drops

Geez. I was going to say 'unbelieveable', but then it's absolutely totally believeable. :angry:
