apparently a new deal is on the table by which a fresh IMF only deal would be available after the end of the EU/ECB/IMF bailout term. A new IMF programme would mean continued conditionality and running the Irsh budget along IMF rules.
now looking at this strategy, I am surprised that Lagarde would play along. Is her position at the IMF marginal or is that a French effort to undermine a European deal? And would be an IMF only deal be a better option for Ireland?
