A fascinating piece, Paul. Well done.
I was particularly intrigued with the detail of how The Irish Times published an inaccurate mock-up as part of a campaign against Busaras. The newspaper cutting reproduced in History Ireland is quite startling, the Irish Times claimed that Busaras would dominate over the Customs House.
What a con job by the Old Lady of D'Olier Street! Scott should have taken them for millions.
