Thread: Alan Dukes: If Germany Is Daft Enough To Pay 100% Of Its Sovereign Debt Let Them Pay But We Can Default

    Default Alan Dukes: If Germany Is Daft Enough To Pay 100% Of Its Sovereign Debt Let Them Pay But We Can Default

    Alan Dukes Chairman of Anglo Irish Bank (IBRC ) and former leader of Fine Gael just came up with an novel and attractive proposal on Marian Finucane.

    Here is the Dukes deal: Let all the Eurozone countries with a certain high debt to GDP ratio such as Ireland, Greece, Spain, Italy default on all its sovereign debt. And let the Germans pay 100% of their sovereign debt if they are daft enough to do so.

    Is that a viable proposal by Alan Dukes?

    No

    But if AD is now so dissilusioned by the the dominance of the Central Powers

    - then that is worth making note of

    Alan sounds pretty convinced this could work. I don't know what is ideas are for post default Ireland but he doesn't like the idea of paying for sovereign debt.

    Alan Dukes was sure this plan would work, but it was too simple for the EU to go ahead and do it. Rabbitte back to the standing of the country, Bank machines with no cash and still softly softly to our masters.

    Kind of inevitable, considering the way the institutional state is still funding hundreds of useless quangos, semi-quangos, businesses. Plus NAMA. Plus Pillar Banks. Plus thousands of useless professionals on contract at extortionate fees.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Alan Dukes is a man with some standing in Irish society, if he recommends to talk business with the Germans maybe it is time to do so. everyone needs to look after themselves.

    Hey Alan, how about we just shut down IBRC and default on your banking debt?

    Are the Dublin elite finally realising that our 'partners' in Europe are fine with the Irish getting screwed?
