David Drumm

By Al Catraz

FORMER Anglo-Irish Bank chief executive David Drumm has slammed the government for facilitating “a wanton waste of talent” following his first week in jail for industrial-scale fraud.

In a memo smuggled out of Mountjoy in someone’s arse yesterday the convicted fraudster says he is “fitting in fine” in his new surroundings but is “astounded by the sheer waste of talent” around him.

“Everywhere I look there are chancers, gangsters, highly capable con artists and even out and out ruthless gangsters,” he reveals. “Why are these people not out there running Ireland’s banking sector? They are perfect material.”

The former fugitive says he has “worked with far less talent” who have helped banks to prosper “yet our government is depriving Ireland of these amazing skills. It’s a criminal waste!”
