Enda’s Banking Inquiry lap of honour turns into ambush

The Banking Inquiry script has gone horribly wrong. And last Thursday it hit rock bottom.

How Bertie hammered a nail into the Inquiry’s coffin

It was box office day at the Banking Inquiry. The biggest fish of all was on the menu. Members of the Inquiry were visibly excited. A few of the TDs had crossed swords with the star witness a few years ago. A good “performance” against Bertie was essential if they were to earn their party stripes. Yet as the Inquiry does not allow bias, they were, strictly speaking, neutral participants in pursuit of the truth. So on Thursday they all left their political baggage at the door of the dungeon.

Set up for a fall, but slugger Cowen came out fighting

Charlie McCreevy was billed as the appetiser, Brian Cowen the hors d’oeuvres and Bertie Ahern the main course. At long last, the Banking Inquiry was set to gorge itself on the Fianna Fail carcases. Earlier witnesses, like the economists, the media, the regulators and the bankers themselves, were the warm-ups. The Banking Inquiry was never about the bankers. It was always about Fianna Fail.
