A lot of the higher spec cars have been shipped back out of Ireland in the last few years due to the VRT rebate. A scheme I have never really gotten my head around, I can't understand the wider benefit and to Revenue of handing back cash and reducing the quality of cars in the country.

That very suspiciously smells of some independent/FF wanting to take a political interest in running the bank instead of running it at arms length. Not good. Hardly the most worrying. It ...
