  1. It looks as if, when the dust settles, Anglo will have lost between 40% and 50% of its September 2008 loan book. When did a bank of this size ever lose so much? I look forward to the Nyberg report.

  2. how is that accounted for? I presume that as Anglo is not valued as an asset on the national balance sheet then the reduction in value of its loan book is not a cost and thus not attributable to the budget deficit? Surely though some of its costs such as staff count as govt spending and thus for the budget deficit?

  3. I still have a hang-over …

    Revolutionary marxism looks more appealing …

    Spose it’ll have to cure itself …

    “Oh and by the way, Anglo Irish Bank released…..”

    These few words accurately capture the shock induced numbness I have developed recently when reading about the monetary bills and losses the banks have been kind enough to rain ( I have a more appropriate word in mind) down on us

    Much more of these kind of figures and we may have to move a decimal point (or two) in this curious and increasingly frightening currency which we are using just to keep our sanity.

    Alternatively we could set up a Puint at a rate of 10 Euros to 1 Puint. IR£ 1.77 billion and £Ir2.4 billion (while being just as devastating) may be digestible enough to psychologically stir us into re-cuperative action.

    Such a move may even allow us all to regain some concept of the value of money. After all it is not so long ago since a £Ir 70000 house and
    £ Ir12000 salary were attainments which individuals were happy to have achieved.
