I was just thinking, if our national broadcaster wanted to do a real cutting edge show they would do a revisited to this program. Have Johnno come back and talk to these people face to face. Lets see what kind of reaction Johnno would get after dishing out the advice he did to these people. I think this was possibly the most dangerous bubble fuelling program that was out there
They do it for How long will I live so why not this one It really would be great to see a revisited to this one
There is only one TV programme our country needs right now.
A public prime time debate about the merits of NAMA.
One the one side would be Peter Mathews.
On the other side would be five or six of the banking establishment’s most pro-NAMA advocates.
But RTE will never allow such a live programme, because Mathews’ arguments are so unassailable he wouldn’t just bring down NAMA.
He’d bring down the government.
How about calling it. I’m an adult get me out of Negative Equity.
I remember watched the show and thinking that John Maguire was the nearest thing to Satan that i’d ever seen on telly. The way he sold peoples futures out from under them. I used to squirm when he rang brokers and squeezed an extra few thousand that the person couldn’t afford to buy a shitbox. Total scumbag.
The strange thing is John Mcguire is absolutely fucking loved by your average Joe. Whether it be as a Celebrity Banisteoir or a pseudo-celeb on some panel, people break their backs to laugh at his jokes and slaver over his suave sophisticated taste in fancy cars and leather jackets.
I figured I wouldnt be the only one who found this delusional man on a par with Satan himself. Not just the people on the show who bought the “shitboxes” but the others who thought if a big tv celeb is telling me to beg borrow or steal to get into a 2 bed shitbox in the commuter belt, it must be a good idea. Many many lives are in tatters thanks to this snake oil salesman
