Guy News Special Report:
Exposing the Guardian’s Hypocritical Tax Dodges

The GuyNews.TV team has been investigating the Guardian’s murky financial affairs for weeks, we have their press office on speed dial. The Guardian’s editor Alan Rusbridger says he asked the GMG plc CEO to answer our questions. So far all we have got is a terse statement from GMG plc. However the GuyNews.TV investigative team has spoken with insiders and literally got inside the Guardian. Our report will be going out exclusively to Guidogram subscribers at 5 p.m. today – the truth is a story which will shock Guardian readers.

    O/T Sorry,but this is worthy of its own thread.

    AN ACCOUNTANCY watchdog’s inquiry into the conduct of former Anglo Irish Bank chairman Sean FitzPatrick has been postponed, following concern expressed by the the Irish Director of Public Prosecutions that it might prejudice future criminal cases.

    The disciplinary tribunal, set up by Ireland’s Chartered Accountants’ Regulatory Board (CARB), was due to begin its investigation early next month (4 April). The hearing, which would have been in public, was to examine the role played by 62-year-old FitzPatrick at the debt-laden bank, which has since become synonymous with the Irish economic crisis.

    However, following the intervention by DPP James Hamilton, the tribunal has now adjourned until October, when the matter will be reconsidered. A spokesman for CARB explained: “The DPP expressed his concern that the holding of public hearings and the publication of findings might prejudice future criminal proceedings in the event that a prosecution is directed against any party arising from the investigations by the Gardai and the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement.”

    The spokesman added that CARB is now considering whether to proceed with the establishment of three other disciplinary tribunals to hear cases against other members of Chartered Accountants Ireland – former Anglo Irish chief executive David Drumm, former finance director William McAteer, and the finance director of Irish Life & Permanent, Peter Fitzpatrick.

    A special investigator, John Purcell, a former comptroller and auditor general, had been appointed by CARB to examine possible breaches of professional conduct rules at Anglo Irish, and he reported that there were prima facie cases to answer against those named. In relation to the former Anglo chairman, he listed three issues:

    • His role in the temporary transfers of his own loans of up to €122m (£107m) out of the bank and the failure to disclose them in Anglo’s financial statements.

    • His role in the transactions between Anglo Irish and Irish Life & Permanent of more than €7bn in deposits on key dates in 2008.

    • His role in relation to a loan of €8m provided by Anglo to finance director McAteer in 2008 to repay a Bank of Ireland loan and prevent his shares being sold on the open market.

            Bearing in mid the nationality of our host; and the odd few quid that the UK has stumped up in connexion with such alleged, erm, shenanigans, I’d have thought the subject eminently appropraite for analysis by the resident experts here.

    The cuts are too fast and too deep. The economy is scarred for life. The fact that the cuts are extremely moderate should not get in the way of a good soundbite.

      These cuts will take us back to 2005, a time when children went barefoot in the street, dressed in rags! Open sewers poured down every road! Smog! Gaslamps! The workhouse!

    Socialism is a mental illness says:

    Would love to hound the guardian on there comment section, but was kicked off months ago for giving them grief, all facts, like the Nazis were socialists and the two-faced crap Toynbee spews. As their legend states, ‘The facts are sacred’ which was thrown back at them many times, they just do not like it up them. Chase them Guido, wipe them out.

    The Graun has pulled all your comments, Guido. Apparently Comment is not free…
