We truly live in interesting times

Anglo Irish bank is set to take over Arnott’s department store. Because as was pointed out on Morning Ireland, they proved to be so good at running a bank that running a department store should be no bother to them.

As Anglo Irish is controlled by the Irish state, does this mean that Arnott’s will be the state-owned store of choice? Will this reduce the variety available to the discerning Celtic cubling?

In this brave new Ireland, as if we hadn’t already realised it, up is down and black is white. I wonder what else Anglo will move to take over in the next 12 months?
