    Default Sindo: "Fears that 'historic' debt deal is illegal"

    CONCERNS are growing that the Government's 'historic' agreement with the ECB on the promissory notes is illegal.
    Writing exclusively in today's Sunday Independent, the former chief financial officer of Anglo Irish Bank, Maarten van Eden, describes the deal as being in breach of the ECB's "fundamental rule against monetary financing".
    Elsewhere in today's paper, UCD economist Colm McCarthy also expresses his fears for the future of the prom note agreement, saying: "Central Bank governor Patrick Honohan expressed confidence in an RTE interview last Sunday that the promissory note deal with the ECB would not unravel. A week later, the unravelling appears to have commenced."

    Ironic that van Eden worked for Anglo - of all places!

    But with Snipper Mac joining the gathering of "Deal" skeptics, we can be sure of one thing;-

    There is goin to be some craic with the Pro No's, Hono & the No-no's...

    Did Baldy not claim recently that the original promissory notes were illegal in the first place! Thus lending support to the argument that the new deal (the worst 'win', we could possibly have had and obviously the ECB saw them coming!) was cobbled together hastily for fear of a virtually inevitable supreme court judgement!

    The only thing that is a surprise here is that so many bought into this scam.

    Don't go to hard on the scum at that Dail Sh!tting, many of them were well beyond the legal limit at it! Indeed as a mate suggested some TDs surely snorted some of the devil's dandruff of toilet seats in Leinster house prior to the vote! Unlike alot of us they wouldn't have been stuck for a 5€ note as a conduit for it!

    The Bundesbank said in yesterday's IT that it didn't want the deal reopened....?

    The Sindo thinks; isn't that some kind of oxymoron?
