Now that's classy

State-rescued Anglo-Irish Bank served champagne at the stated-rescued RBS sponsored Six Nations Championship match between Ireland and France. Bottoms up, British and Irish taxpayers!

UPDATE: Things could be worse for the IRFU and Croke Park. They could be the English and International Cricket Boards, which under the theory of fraudulent conveyance, might be obliged by US authorities to return sponsorship receipts from Allen Stanford given that the US government has now claimed that he was running a criminal enterprise. The UK government won't be in much of a position to complain on their behalf, since in the past they have approved aggressive US prosecutorial tactics in financial fraud cases. Ask the NatWest 3.
