Something Rotten : Irish Banking Scandals

'Something Rotten' is a look at 14 major banking scandals in Ireland in the last 30 years. Ireland has developed and tolerated a culture of lax practice and weak regulation in its financial services sector. It took the sensational revelations at various tribunals to uncover some of them.

Simon Carswell opens with one of the most colourful rogues in the history of Irish banking, Ken Bates - the same Ken Bates who sold Chelsea FC to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Back in the mid-1970s he was the owner of the Irish Trust Bank which went bust leaving more than 1,200 depositors with the loss of their savings. He is now the Chairman of Leeds United.
