David Mc Williams in his latest posting Memo to ECB: print money

Highlights the conundrum the Germans now find themselves in!


As the paymasters of Europe, they are not happy in this unforeseen roll and the opposition in Germany is growing as we see with the loss of North Rhine-Westphalia see article here

In last week’s elections in Germany, by the ruling party of Angela Merkel.

Where this leaves the Euro is another question, I think too much has been invested in the Euro enterprise, so much so that I don’t expect to see the Germans just ditch it anytime soon!

The latest support package for the beleaguered Euro is testimony to the fight the Germanys are still prepared to put up, to save their investment in the single currency.

But what have the Europeans really agreed to?

From here it looks like a giant NAMA solution! Yes we have arrived at the unthinkable, a NAMA for Europe .this of course is just as bad if not even worse that our own Irish NAMA ,but with much worse consequences. All over the air waves to-day we hear that the Euro has been saved and the markets initial reaction is positive but the markets are prone to swing at a moment’s notice and I would not put faith in any initial reaction.

Where are all these billions going to come from and what is the Irish government’s contribution going to be now ,from my estimates we could be asked to stump up 5,000.000.000 billion. (Under the loan package, euro-area governments pledged 440 billion euros in loans or guarantees, with 60 billion euros more in loans from the EU’s budget and as much as 250 billion euros from the International Monetary Fund.)

Where are we going to get this kind of money? Am I the only party pooper?

Surely spending this sort of money replicates the reckless actions that got us here in the first place!

Someone somewhere is going to ask the question what are we going to have to do the get this money? Give up more sovereignty, in the form of a new Lisbon 3 referendum.

Either way this is not good news and this will dawn on the people of Europe in the coming months!

Just think if NAMA is bad for Ireland ,then Euro NAMA cannot be good for Europe !

Unless the Germans start to experience real pain, and their economy starts to go into depression ,and they then come on to the streets, I expect that things will die down and we will see perhaps new attention been brought on to the dollar again! Why? Because the Americans are much further down the road with their printing presses, and the American Jumbo Debt comes to focus on the world stage again!

The thing about debt is that it has to be faced up to at some stage !

His qualifications are what exactly?

This political dinosaur has been around for a long time and he has been feeding off the lush planes of Taxpayers land

This guy is an old and I mean very old party apparatchik and is well versed in the game of self preservation and self promotion. Mr. Dukes is no more qualified to run this Toxic Toilet than the janitor in our local public toilets.

Already in receipt of various payments from the public purses he will now enjoy financial security for the rest of his life and all thanks to us the taxpayers who have carried his sorry ass for most of his life

How is placing this ancient “public servant” (Leach) at the top of the Board of the Anglo Irish Bank toxic toilet helping the Irish people ?

Listening to the 1 o clock news I heard this man try to justify his new position and also try to tell the Irish public that he could rescue this corrupt and damaged Bank

This is a complete waste of Taxpayers’ money and is going to become a pasture for X politicians waiting to drop dead!
