    I keep posting facts.

    It doesn't suit some people who prefer to believe populist fairy tales.

    That's their problem.



    The bailout cost the State 440bn.
    It did in it's shíte.

    The Bailout (the recapitalisation of the nationalised banks) will cost a net €30 to €35 Billion whenever we sell the shares we own back into the market.

    All of this cost refers to the capital put into Anglo Irish and Irish Nationwide Building Society, aka IBRC.

    On the flip side, the banks had been contributing up to €20 Billion a year in taxes up to 2008, whenever their Ponzi Scheme was going full tilt.

    Also on the flip side, the State received €4.5 Billion in premium income whenever they sold that insurance policy known as The Guarantee to the banks who needed cover. That can come off the net cost above too.

    Between this and endorsing the actions of KBC and the UVF, the Blueshirts and their enablers in FF and the fake left have signed their death warrant.

    Discuss.
    Idiotic OP.

    From your own link:

    Mr Varadkar said that Fine Gael did not put further money into the former Anglo Irish Bank but liquidated it.

    He said that the Department of Finance had received legal advice that any attempt to change the terms of the liquidation would be challenged.
    Furthermore, the State benefits to the tune of €600 million, which it wouldn't get if these junior bonds were burned - meaning the State gets more money from paying these bondholders than it would get if it was even possible to "burn" them. This is also mentioned in your very own link.

    So perhaps a better subject to discuss would be - why such an idiotic, illiterate OP?

    Why do you keep changing Varadkar's quote, and indeed leaving bits of it out?

    No sign of it so far. Why would he, anyway?

    It's been a long time coming, but your excessive Blueshirt fellatio has placed you on my ignore list. Goodbye, HBAP, the pleasure has been all yours.

    Correct.

    But the ordinary people, who comprise the state, did get up to €20 Billion a year worth of benefits from the taxes generated by the bank ponzi scheme.

    Whenever the ponzi scheme ran out of road, and the lending stopped, the ordinary people, who comprise the state, lost this here €20 Billion a year of taxes.


    Seperately, whenever the banks stopped lending, there was no price support for the asset classes that the banks had become overweight in during the ponzi scheme. The owners and providers of certain classes of risk capital lost more than €40 billion in investments in the banks as their money was used to cover the losses as asset prices were repeatedly written down.

    Whenever the banks needed new capital to replace the capital used to cover the losses, and the banks couldn't obtain it (or enough of it, on the markets, the ordinary people, who comprise the state, put in new capital so that the rest of the economy, which needed a functioning banking system, could keep on going.



    The bailout, totaling 440bn from 16 countries, was forced on us.
    This is nonsense.

    Utter gibberish.




    All that was needed was for bondholders to take their losses
    The shareholders, and those bondholders who were holding certain types of bonds, lost €40 Billion.

    They took their losses.

    The new money from the ordinary people, who comprise the state, went in to recapitalise the banks AFTER the losses had been taken.



    [quoteand for government to increase taxes on wealth, corporations and high-income earners.[/quote]

    Or, God forbid, cut back the 50% increases in spending that had been taking place during the ponzi scheme using the windfall taxes.



    We got no referendum or say in having this loan on makey-uppy gambling losses forced on us.
    We had a referendum on May 17th 2002. 880,000 people voted to keep the Ponzi Scheme going.
