I advocate that our Government should consider these issues. There is no risk involved in that the money will be repaid.
Buying shares in the banks is hardly a risk free investment.
Then again, Mr. Fahey would know – him being a shareholder (or at least was) in both Bank of Ireland and Irish Life & Permanent (Permanent TSB). A Government recapitalisation of the banks would definitely put a floor under any losses that he may have on those investments.
