A picture from life's other side

category national | arts and media | news report author Thursday October 21, 2010 10:09author by Sean Mallory Report this post to the editors

RTE's Joe Duffy for once and unknowingly had his finger on the pulse when he accidentally illustrated the differing effects of the recession in a 7 minute clip

It opens with a woman talking about the tragic death of Slovakian man Stefan Adami who committed suicide from despair at his economic situation. When he was cut off his benefit, he and his wife were stuck in what sounds like a Dickensian situation.

At the end of the clip, in add for another RTE show, Chris De Burgh's daughter Rosanna Davison (socialite) talks about her famed trip to Marakech with Johnny Ronan (failed developer & co owner of Treasury holdings). Davison does not seem to be aware/care that she went in a private jet owned by Ronan when he owed the Irish tax payer 896 million through Nama. Perversely she seems relishes in the gossip, egged on by an RTE presenter.

(note: the clip opens abruptly with a person discussing suicide)
