The lead article in tomorrow's FT is an interview with Brian Lenihan in which he states that the failure of Anglo Irish Bank would "bring down" Ireland.
He states that, "It is systematically important not because of any intrinsic merit in the bank. But because of its size relative to the national balance sheet. No country could contemplate the failure of such an institution."
The article also states that the markets may be about the target AIB, and that in response the government is about to announce a further injection of €2-3billion.
