On the night of Budget 2015 we were asked to participate in a large panel discussion on Vincent Browne’s ‘Tonight’ show. We tried to make the point that the budget was not one that should have people too disappointed, it was the first time in years that anything came back to tax payers rather than taking more (apart from the better paid who now have a super USC rate).
Irish Mortgage Brokers was featured on RTE’s ‘Frontline’ with Pat Kenny on Monday the 12th of April 2010. The topic of the day was about bailouts for home owners who are in trouble with their mortgages.
Noleen Blackwell of Free Legal Advice Centre was there on behalf of favouring methods to save home owners, and Karl Deeter of Irish Mortgage Brokers was there promoting the use of market mechanisms as a solution, along with arguing the case that for many people, bank ownership of their home is not necessarily a bad thing.
This is a hot topic in Ireland, in particular because many people feel, that taxpayers stepped up to save our banks, so now they should do the same in return.
