I think Cooper enjoys having a go at Tom - never fails to tackle him about the bailout and Tom just keeps coming back for more like the spinmeister that he is, though he did get quite rattled at one stage this evening accusing Matt of repeating some line he’d heard him say earlier this week and basically accusing him of being sarcastic.
Didn’t get a clear answer from Tom when asked if he’d be taking a 10% cut like the CIF members are asking their employees to do - that’ll be a “No” then !
As for the old “VAT-release windfall” chestnut, God only knows what market he is basing his €2b figure on ! Would that be based on 2006 height-of-the-boom sales prices Tom??
A word in your ear Tom…the world has moved on - there aren’t enough buyers out there for all of the poorly-built crap your members are sitting on, and many of them are in locations even the most desperate FTB’er doesn’t want to live even if your developer buddies were giving them away.
Methinks that €2b balloon is losing air at a rapid rate
Welcome to Parlon country - mind the bullshit.
