    Default Rabbitte: "Gov. wont pay PN in March" = more Kite flying?

    So i here Rabbitte on the week in politics programme that the gov. will not be paying the PN next March.

    Now, we have been here before, the fiscal treaty was supposedly only palitable only if we got a bank debt deal.

    Then there was the June statement heralded by Gilmore and Kenny as some sort of "monumental achievement"

    Then we were told that we would have a deal by October.

    Then Noonan said a deal before the budget would be helpful.

    Now today we have Rabbitte stating the above. but as with all this spoofery here is Rabbittes get out clause

    He said the European Central Bank was a difficult institution to "bring around" to stamping the deal Ireland needs on the promissory note.

    But Minister Rabbitte said he believes it will happen before the payment is due next March.

    Yeah.... they'll defer it like the last one and claim it as an outstanding success.

    DELUDED as ever.

    Rabbitte is seriously caught in the EU head-lights (and has been for a while).

    What Honohan just said is that Anglo Irish Bank will pay every little cent of the promissory notes guaranteed but they might need a bit more time. Time means it will be even more expensive, Rabbitte should choose his words very carefully here.

    Communications Minister Pat Rabbitte has said that the country will not pay the €3.1bn promissory note for former Anglo Irish Bank when it is due in March.

    Just wait for the host of interpretations and the political double speak around this.

    No offence to the OP, but Sync has canned the wrong thread.

    The other thread was started at 5.11 and this thread at 5.12.

    Of course they're gonna pay the fuckin thing. Spineless pension collecting gombeens.
