found this on p.ie - it’s the relevant part of the interview
Maybe he could go supergrass. Witness relocation.
I would imagine that Merkel and the Germans were also still mightily pissed off about Depfa.
Fixed that for you
Understatement of the decade, dude. Incidentally, I heard that they paid bonuses to their staff this year.
Perhaps the mods can change the title of this thread and remove ‘week’ to avoid any confusion? I initially thought Gormley had said it was decided upon the week before but he said the day before.
In any case, the story remains the same and it is clear that major lies have been told. I see it is now being discussed by Karl Whelan and Labour have issued a statement.
Will the mainstream media make a big deal of this?? Will anything happen as a result or are the Irish people now just immune to the lies and spin? Do they care anymore? I sure bloody do!!
I didn’t see this anywhere.
On VB show on 8 December, Eamonn Ó Cuív stated that if the banks had been let go to the wall in September 2008, the State would have been liable to cover €82bn of ordinary deposits in irish banks who had under €100k. This was a State guarantee at the time. He said he got the figures from the Dept. of Finance.
Does that figure seem right?
There were 200+bn in deposits in the banks at the time of the guarantee.
edit: but the state would not have been liable for all of it. To say that would be to assume that there would be a rather large writedown on the assets of the bank (i.e. that the depositors would receive nothing from the liquidation of the bank). Bad and all as the Irish banks are, I don’t think they are that bad.
