Our worst fears have come true – the bankers have bankrupted Ireland for a generation. What to do now? Well for one thing, let’s stop despairing. And when the next election comes around, be prepared to make your vote count...
So, we have a figure, more or less. Anglo Irish Bank will set us all back by €29bn. Throw in €6.5bn for Allied Irish, €5.4bn for Irish Nationwide, €3.5 for Bank of Ireland, add €5bn for a worst case scenario and bob’s your uncle. The total is not far off a billion a week for a year.
