    Bang on .

    The central bank has nothing to do with this . It's SOLELY down to noonan calling am EGM at aib n the permo n ordering a reduction upon pain of sacking the boards .

    THAT Is what he can do and the fact is he doesn't want to do it as he's on the banks side .

    The Extent of the Mortgage Crisis in Ireland and Policy Responses

    Abstract
    From the mid-1990s, Ireland experienced a property bubble, fuelled by deregulation in the banking sector and government commitment to expanding home ownership. However, since 2007, the situation has dramatically reversed. The banking system and property market have collapsed and pushed the Irish state into insolvency. National house prices have fallen by 50 per cent from the peak in 2007, whereas incomes have contracted and the unemployment rate has increased. This has produced a serious situation regarding negative equity and mortgage arrears, a problem highlighted by the former U.S. President Bill Clinton on a visit to Ireland in 2011. This paper examines government responses to the mortgage crisis, particularly their emphasis on mortgage forbearance and reform of Ireland's bankruptcy legislation. An overview of the drivers of the bubble and the extent of negative equity and arrears is provided firstly. In conclusion, the paper reflects upon the implications of the crisis for the homeownership model that Ireland has followed for the last two decades.

    I think someone as hot as her belongs on TV. Furthermore he has a great speaking voice. No hint of that dreadful dort accent that seems to pervade RTE.

    It's dosent give her full bio , having worked for Newstalk I would say is important for people to know. It is a right wing radio station with very fixed views on the economy and society.

    I just realised at 1.00 as Claire began the show that there was no thread available and quickly set about starting one.

    My apologises if all the text was not included as I did so in an hurry and have been attempting to update the thread as the show continues.

    She's from Mountrath, a good country woman. She was never adverse to getting her hands dirty in the fields around her house.

    Claire is a very capable presenter compared to many who are part of the RTE establishment. She manages to progress the discussion and gives an opportunity to all contributors to respond. On occasion she has raised her voice and called people to account both on her TV show and on her Saturday radio show.

    Returning to the discussion now

    7000 repossessions proceedings are under-way and a further 25,000 may be before the courts in coming months.
