Ireland bailout
Ireland bailout

The Big Picture has a great graphic of where the money is coming from for the Irish bailoout.

The Star seems on the money. Other countries have similarly talented politicians.

How did they get into this mess? Lots of reasons, but amongst them will be poor regulation:

German banks set up subsidiaries in Ireland.  These subsidiaries were often registered as completely Irish companies.  Back in Germany the German regulator (BaFin) had strict and enforced rules.  Very good rules for the most part. Far, far better than Britain or Ireland.  But these good rules, properly enforced meant German banks could not do many of the most lucrative and in hind sight reckless kinds of deals.

So the German banks would do the figures and work it all out in Frankfurt, then send a banker over to Ireland, get them to sit at ‘their’ desk in Ireland, in the Irish bank, and do the deal there. The legal registration of the deal and the ‘oversight’ were all Irish.  This is known in the financial world as jurisdictional arbitrage.  You and I would call it cheating if we were feeling charitable and lying if we weren’t.

The Banker flies back to Germany, where the German bank hasn’t  done any deal, and therefore has done nothing wrong. The deal was properly overseen and approved by the appropriate Irish financial authorities and the profits would be banked at a very happy Irish bank.  If any management of the ‘deal’ was required an Irish company would be hired, there are many, and an Irish manager often living not far from Cork, would ‘manage’ the money in and out.  I have spoken to such people. Usually I can hear the sweat coming off them as they ask how I got their number and where did I get my information.  To which I would reply that the Internet is a very large place and never, never forgets.

Now my question to you is this.  If it’s a German bank and a German banker doing the deal is it Germany who made the mess?  Or, equally justified, if the deal was actually done in Ireland in an Irish company allowed and no doubt welcomed by Ireland’s financial world, and overseen by Ireland’s wonderful regulators, is it Ireland who made the mess?

Now, where have I heard this before?

I can’t say and neither can you,  if the losses are Irish or German. But we can say, the losses never were, and should not ever be,  yours and mine. We, the people, who were told nothing, were not asked nor consulted, whose laws were either ignored, set aside or re-written, we should not be expected to pay for those losses now.

They are bankers losses.  It is NOT a question of Irish or German. It is question of wealthy bankers from all countries not just Germany (almost every nation, Germany, America, Russia, France Britain, we did dirty work in Ireland) and their corrupt Irish helpers versus the people. It is not a question of should the Irish people or the German people pay. Neither people should. It should be the bankers who made the losses who should take them.

DO NOT allow the bankers to set us against each other as a cover for their crime and guilt.

As I’ve said for the US. There will be hell to pay, and rightly so.
