He is reporting on rumours that the State is going to convert preference shares to common shares.

Opposition TD's are fuming that they are being asked to vote on a bank guarantee extension while the government know, but will not release, the final Anglo figure.

It won't change the need to extend the guarantee but I would tend to agree - the number is now known and should be provided to the opposition - even if they decide for some reason that they need to wait until cob tomorrow to officially release it to the markets I think that they could arrange a meeting with Kenny and Gilmore and advise them in confidence of the numbers.

The opposition should pre empt the Govt extension of the guarantee by declaring that it will be revoked when they get into Govt.

This would render the current Govt insignificant and force them to call an election.
