Councillor Joan Collins (pictured below) said; “The bailout of the banks will cost us at least €24 billion. Already €3.5 billion has been pumped into Bank of Ireland and they are saying it is not enough. This money could be used to reverse cuts and invest in job creation. The state should take over the banking system and run the banks in the interest of the people. The banks should be run by elected representatives of the Irish people not overpaid executives”.
