There are around a dozen empty properties in this country for every homeless woman, man and child in Ireland.

Some estimated the cost of the pope’s visit to Ireland was between €20 million and €30 million; likewise it’s difficult to get exact figures for taxpayer costs of Eric Trump’s visits to Doonbeg golf course in the west of Ireland. The Trumpeter himself is supposed to visit soon too; no doubt he’ll have public money showered over him as well.

The Irish government are very grateful for the low-paid work these buffoons provide for our Polish visitors.

Evictions are happening as I type this.

The Remoaners will be blaming it on Brexit. The more these gambler banks contract the better as far as I'm concerned, especially from London so that we're not in the firing line for bail outs.

Pretty hard to see how this could be proved to be linked to Brexit, Ken, but, by judging some of the questionable social media posts by pre-Remain groups, they probably will.

With Deutsche Bank I believe that Basel III agreement of bail ins is the de facto first stage whereby the onus will fall on the shareholders and bondholders. However, the losses arising would rapidly dwarf anything that said share and bondholders could muster. Which will then threaten the whole of the European Banking system.

Naked Capitalism takes the view that Deutsche Bank is going to die a death of a thousand cuts, which may prove to be the best strategy.
Deutsche Bank throws in the towel, announces restructuring into Good Bank/Bad Bank, fires 18,000
