Deutschland über Alles

Trust the Banksters to deposit the capital required to expedite a proper investigation of their activities. Just as Nero strummed the harp while Rome burned a top banker at Anglo Irish serenaded a colleague with a verse of Deutschland uber Alles, while his banks inane, insane if you like, policies amounted to a scorched earth assault on the Irish economy, leaving it a wasteland incapable of supporting lives, jobs or societal well being.

Indicating that the tape of the singing banker could herald the downfall of the banksters the Guardian reported that:

As an illustration of the bankers' arrogance and the Irish politicians' temerity, these audiotapes could hardly be bettered. It's very late in the day but Dublin must order a proper inquiry into events of 2008 and 2009.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said that the outrage prompted by the singing throughout Irish society was justified.
