Anglo Irish Bank bailout price tag £29bn

first_img Show Comments ▼ Anglo Irish Bank bailout price tag £29bn Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapp Ireland’s central bank has put a 34 billion euro (£29bn) price on bailing out stricken Anglo Irish Bank under a worst case scenario and said Allied Irish Banks needs to raise an additional three billion euros by the end of the year.The government will announce plans to recapitalise Allied Irish Banks, the central bank said. Dublin already has a near 19 per cent stake in the lender.“Today’s announcements take the Irish banking system closer to a final resolution of its restructuring, which is a prerequisite for sustained economic recovery,” Central Bank Governor Patrick Honohan said in statement.Under its base case scenario, the central bank said the Anglo Irish bill was expected to be 29.3bn euros.The euro slipped in the wake of the announcement about the nationalised lender.The central bank said the additional cost of recapitalising Anglo Irish Bank and Allied Irish Banks confirmed the need for a reprogramming of the government’s budget plans.“The additional budgetary costs – and in particular the higher debt-to-GDP ratio that is implied – confirm the need for a reprogramming of the budgetary profile, though it is important to recognise that the bulk of this reprogramming need arises from other sources,” Honohan said.Prime Minister Brian Cowen’s government has a wafer-thin majority in parliament and faces a discontented electorate, making it politically difficult to toughen up a budget in December that is already expected to be harsh.Ireland has already injected nearly 23 billion euros into Anglo Irish Bank.Irish borrowing costs have climbed to euro lifetime highs and triggered jitters across Europe over as investors craved some certainty about the bill to wind down Anglo Irish.Cowen was hailed internationally for taking early tough action to tackle Ireland’s towering deficit but that goodwill has disappeared as the burden of dealing with the nationalised lender escalated.European Union officials are pressing Dublin to come up with a detailed plan for getting its fiscal gap – the worst in the bloc – under control by 2014. Euro zone finance ministers are expected to discuss the situation when they meet in Brussels later in the day.Bond traders have said a figure of up to 35bn had been priced into the market after ratings agency S&P said the bill could be that high.Ireland has insisted the Anglo bill, which is expected to propel government debt to over 100 per cent of GDP, will be manageable because it will be spread out over at least a decade.

Mike Phillips previews Scotland v Wales

first_imgPhillips claimed that Wales also fell victim to England’s spoiling tactics, adding: ‘The yellow card was a long time coming. They slowed our ball down well and when you tried to pick the ball up they were lying all over it and that made it very difficult. That was the ref’s interpretation and he is a good referee, one of the best in the world, but there were a couple of forward passes out there which were blatant when you looked at the screen. ‘It was just disappointing and he needed help from his assistants as well.’And he thought that Wales could have done a lot more to combat England’s confrontational style. ‘They were big boys and we needed to throw it around and when we did that we were good but they were just too strong for us up front in the end,’ said Phillips. ‘We struggled at the set-piece and the yellow card killed us and we know we cannot afford to go down to 14-men in a game like this.’‘All the boys gave everything and it’s all you can do as a player but the management pick the team and it down them what happens now.’ LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Phillips saw huge promise in three Welsh youngsters in particular.‘We have some youngster in the side now and I thought Jonathan Davies was outstanding and Sam Warburton and Dan Lydiate were superb,’ said Phillips.center_img Mike Phillips makes a darting run against England at the weekendMike Phillips has urged the Wales team to believe in themselves ‘even if nobody else does’. Phillips admitted to being devastated by the 26-19 defeat by England in Cardiff on Friday night, but wants to ensure they bounce back at Murrayfield on Saturday. ‘We know we can still go on and win the championship,’ said Philips. ‘We can still go on and win the rest of our games and that is our aim now.‘I know there are a few big wins ahead of us and there is no reason why we can’t go and do well from here. Everybody in the Six Nations is capable of beating everybody and that is what makes it so exciting and a great tournament.We know it’s going to be tough now but we have to go to Scotland to get a win. We just need to get back on the horse and play some rugby. We have to believe in ourselves, even if nobody else does. We are just thinking too much about things and we just need to get out there and throw the ball about.’‘Scotland are the most improved side in the last couple of years. They will be tough and we know they will be up for it but we have won up there before and there is no reason why we cannot do it again.’Phillips thought that England got away lightly in the first half at the Millennium Stadium when Louis Deacon was yellow-carded. The England lock committed a professional foul, killing the ball in front of the posts and Wales failed to capitalise on his sin bin, scoring just three points, as did England. ‘We didn’t quite take them in the first half hour but there was a blatant try on when they got a yellow card,’ said Phillips. ‘We didn’t capitalise on that and we had a couple of other chances but we didn’t have much ball and were forced to live off scraps.’‘It was difficult, we dug deep and did well to get back into the game. When the game broke up, we looked dangerous and were a far more of a threat. When we had the confidence to offload in the tackle and play a bit of rugby we were a better side.’last_img read more

Mexico progressives charge fraud in defeat of AMLO

first_imgThousands of supporters march with leftist candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Mexico City to close the campaign. Photo: Alan RothAnother electoral fraud has taken place in Mexico. On July 1, Andres Manuel López Obrador, better known as AMLO and the candidate of the left, was robbed of the presidency — for the second time. This time, however, the conditions were very different from the election of 2006, when the Electoral Tribunal of the Federal Judiciary declared Felipe Calderón of the National Action Party (PAN) the winner over AMLO.Several months ago, in the midst of AMLO’s electoral campaign, there was great enthusiasm among the supporters of his Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) and the progressive movement in general. But his victory was not certain.Then, something changed in the political scene in Mexico.Sign held in mass march during Mexican electionshows strength of ‘I am #132 campaign.’ Photo: Alan Rothyouth movement arose that rejected his main opponent, Enrique Peña Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which had ruled the country for most of the 20th century. The PRI’s control of the federal government was ended in 2000, four years after the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement, when the former chief executive of Coca-Cola in Mexico, Vicente Fox, brought the PAN to power for the first time.That was a victory for the U.S. imperialist agenda of pushing neoliberalism and privatization. Fox was followed by six more years of a PAN presidency under Calderón. However, the more than 60,000 people killed during Calderón’s term in a violent drug war ordered by the U.S., plus the privatization of education and other anti-people policies, caused the PRI to come in third in this election.During the 12 years of PAN presidents, NAFTA’s impact, which had opened up Mexico as a market for U.S.-government subsidized corn, led to the ruination of many peasants who had worked communal lands for generations. They were forced to emigrate by the millions across the border to find work. A growing income gap in Mexico worsened the social conditions.While no longer controlling the federal government, the PRI has been entrenched in many states. However, it ruled with an iron fist in the past and still has blood on its hands.One of its most recent crimes was committed by Peña Nieto when he was governor of the state of Mexico. On May 3 and 4, 2006, more than 3,000 repressive agents of the police and State Security forces were called in to fight against the people of Atenco, who had gathered to defend the right of small vendors to sell flowers in front of the municipal market.The people were met by brutal state force, resulting in the deaths of two young men, the rape of 26 women, and the violation of the human rights of 209, including torture of 206 people. (eleconomista.com.mx)‘Yo soy #132’ springs upThis May 11, when the PRI’s Peña Nieto went to campaign for president at the Ibero American University (UIA), a private college attended by children of the middle class, he thought he would be welcomed. Instead he was met by intense questioning. The students protested his role during the Atenco repression, shouting “Atenco will not be forgotten.”Peña Nieto then took responsibility for the repression but defended his action, angering the students further. Finally he took refuge in a bathroom, after which his security team whisked him away through the back door of the building to avoid a peaceful protest the students had organized. (mexico.cnn.com)The university president then said that the protesters were not students but rather members of AMLO’s movement. But 131 UIA students who had been at the event made a video showing their university IDs. They posted it on YouTube, where it went viral.A movement was thus formed, mostly through the social networks YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, where other UIA students declared “Yo soy #132? (I am number 132).Since then, the movement spread all over Mexico, including other universities, both private and public, and non-students. They received support from artists nationally and internationally and from movements throughout the world. They organized several mobilizations and even a presidential debate with all the candidates — where Peña Nieto refused to appear. On the website animalpolitico.com, they published a statement and demands to attain a “freer Mexico, with more justice and prosperity.” They said, “We want the current situation of misery, inequality, poverty and violence to be resolved.”Massive evidence of electoral fraudAs the exposure of Peña Nieto, particularly by the Yo soy #132 movement, became massive, the PRI initiated a campaign through its dominant media — Televisa, TV Azteca and others. They praised Nieto, the candidate of the oligarchy, and demonized AMLO. They reported as fact deceptive polling results, making it appear that Peña Nieto was so far ahead that it would be impossible for AMLO to win the election.Mounting evidence of electoral fraud has appeared all over the social networks, alternative media and progressive news websites like Cubadebate and Telesur. The evidence ranges from oral testimonies, photos, videos and statements to government documents accessed by activists like Anonymous, who hacked the website of the Federal Electoral Institute.Mexicans were urged to take pictures of voting lists in every location and upload them to Facebook and other networks, where they could be compared. Several websites exist for this purpose: OpenPrep.org, Contamos.org.mx and FotoXCasilla.mx. According to this effort, the votes counted give a lead to AMLO. ­(cubadebate.cu)It has also emerged that the PRI resorted to other illegal maneuvers, such as the distribution of cards redeemable at the Soriana chain of grocery and department stores in return for votes. This became a major scandal, which the PRI had not counted on, as masses of voters went to the stores to cash in their cards. Some stores had to close because of the enormous demand.On July 12, AMLO held a press conference presenting all the evidence on which he is basing his demand to annul the election results. In sum, he states that 5 million votes were bought by the PRI.Part of the PRI strategy, according to AMLO’s findings, was buying votes in the poorest regions of the country through the intervention of PRI governors, who promised cash, redeemable cards, construction materials, fertilizer and so on in exchange for votes. (lopezobrador.org.mx)National Convention and Mexico’s futureWhile the forces around AMLO are initiating suits against the electoral fraud in the legal arena, a great deal of activity continues at all levels. Workers World spoke with José Humberto Montes de Oca, the foreign secretary for the militant Mexican Electricians Union (SME). The SME is part of the National Convention Against the Imposition, an emergency conference organized to devise a plan of action against the imposition of the PRI in the elections.He said the conference met July 14 and 15 under the slogan “To surrender is forbidden.” Some 800 delegates attended, representing 250 organizations from 25 Mexican states. The Yo soy #132 and the People’s Front in Defense of the Land welcomed the participants.The main points for discussion were a plan of action against the imposition, the setting up of a structure for building the National Convention, and a program for struggle. Several demonstrations were approved, including a national day of marches and actions on July 22.Asked about his view of these new developments, Montes de Oca replied that there are three main forces in the postelectoral period. One is AMLO’s coalition and electoral parties. The second is civil society organizations, among them the Yo soy #132. Last is the unorganized civil society, which has convened in a spontaneous manner.This, he said, is a very important development. They do not belong to any party but are political and encourage the rest of the people to struggle peacefully for a program of transformation of the country. He continued, “We are in a time of reconfiguration, of recomposition of the political scene. If all these forces consolidate and become active forces, it will be very interesting, beyond December” — when the new president takes office. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Football looks to bounce back after SMU loss

first_imgFacebook Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Previous articleHoroscope: September 24, 2019Next articleImpeachment 101 Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Linkedin Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ ReddIt Despite series loss, TCU proved they belong against No. 8 Texas Tech Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ printTCU football, a team familiar with beating Kansas, has learned to not take the team lightly after falling to the Jayhawks for their first time as members of the Big 12 last year. “We haven’t really talked about it specifically,” cornerback Julius Lewis said about last year’s loss to Kansas. “We know now that you can’t take anyone lightly.”With that in the back of their minds and coming off of their first loss of the season last week against SMU, the team is eager to take care of business Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium.After being fired by LSU in 2016, Les Miles, who won the BCS National Championship in 2007, took over at the helm for Kansas this season and has Jayhawk fans turning heads for the first time in a while.Standing at 2-2, their season has included a dominating win over Boston College 48-24, their first win over a Power 5 school in almost 11 years. The Jayhawks put up 567 yards of total offense against the Eagles.On the other hand, they have shown lows like falling 12-7 to Coastal Carolina.The Jayhawks’ offense is led by their rushing attack, with two rushers averaging 96 yards or more per game. Their 186.8 rushing yards per game account for over 46% of their total offense. Senior Khalil Herbert leads the way for Kansas with 384 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the year.  Right behind Herbert is Preseason All-Big 12 First Team running back Pooka Williams, Jr. After serving a one-game suspension, the sophomore has rushed for 296 yards and a score so far this season.“Their whole offense [is good],” Patterson said.  “Les Miles is a good guy and a good coach. He’s a good motivator.” As a team, TCU has given up an average of 81 rushing yards per game.  Linebacker Garrett Wallow and his 14.0 tackles per game (No. 3 nationally) have been pivotal in this success for TCU.  Linebacker Garrett Wallow (30) leads TCU with 42 tackles on the season. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.The Frogs are also effective in the run game, as their 260.7 rushing yards per game, No. 4 in the Big 12 and No. 15 nationally. Running back Darius Anderson leads TCU with 368 yards and four touchdowns already this season. The senior has rushed for 150-plus yards in two-straight games after totaling 179 yards and 161 yards against Purdue and SMU, respectively.Both teams are also playing behind signal callers who are full-time starters for the first time. For the Jayhawks, senior Carter Stanley had started a handful of games in his first three years at Kansas. Now the official starter, he has completed 72% of his passes for 861 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions.Stanley’s main target has been wide receiver Andrew Parchment, who previously played at Northern Illinois and Iowa Central Community College.  Parchment has recorded 24 catches for 367 yards and four touchdowns. With senior Julius Lewis questionable again for Saturday, the Frogs could see first-year cornerback Kee’Yon Stewart start opposite of cornerback Jeff Gladney for the fourth-straight game. For TCU, first-year quarterback Max Duggan will most likely start for the second-straight contest. However, Patterson emphasized that he had not found a permanent starting quarterback. While seeing Alex Delton on the field is a possibility for the Frogs, Patterson even mentioned that junior Michael Collins is fully healthy and could play against Kansas.“Mike’s [Collins] gotten himself healthy, finally,” Pattersonsaid.  “He understands the offense.  He’s a guy that played last year.”Kickoff against the Jayhawks is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday.
