Thread: Shane Ross Demands To Default on EU Loan Debt In Dail Speech

  1. #1

    Default Shane Ross Demands To Default on EU Loan Debt In Dail Speech

    In his Euro Area Loan Facility (Amendment) Bill 2013 speech Shane Ross TD Dublin South demands a EU loan debt write-off and describes a possible rescheduling deal on the EFSF and EFSM loans as completely inadequate. He goes on to denounce the effort as a form of grave injustice that will burden future generations with even more debt, debt that was brought on by reckless behavior by people in Ireland in the last decade and today.

    Shane Ross is known for his blunt language in the press and in the Dail but is this threat to default on the EU loans and fight only for the Irish national interest rather than a European wide solution really that smart at this point in time? I mean this from comes from a guy who recommended Sean FitzPatrick as Governor for the Irish Central Bank not too long ago...

    Not smart at all but what do you expect. Ross is a spoofer of the highest order who uses his position on a Dail committee to provide him with material for his weekly column.

    Ross is one of the few (very few) people that should be listened to in Leinster house.

    He is very happy to suggest that someone else do exactly what he would not do himself, were he in their position.

    Apparently Shane's British friends in The City (London) pulled his leg on Monday by describing him as a good obedient Irish man paying his bankers debt. Now this, what a predictable reaction from a guy without any remaining self-esteem. his friends in The City must be pleased.

    Hmm, have you a timeframe for when this default will occur? Will it be.........in the next couple of days?

    You should set up a thread about it. Or have ZH not given you the go ahead yet?
