Olli Rehn: No Haircuts For Senior Bondholders
So here is the Irish bailout in a nutshell: senior bondholders impairment: zero; Irish pensioners impairment: about 100%. Olli Rehn just confirmed during the press conference that senior bondholders will not be impaired. Irish taxpayers and pensioners to be overjoyed. Additionally, the maturity of the Irish IMF loan will be 7.5 years. This also means that the maturity of the Greek loans will likely be extended. Club Med will now exist indefinitely on life support, or until the euro is dissolved, whichever comes first. Lastly the pathologically lying sociopath just said that Europe will rerun its stress tests again next year... And as many times as needed until faith in Europe is restored, and 300 million austere Europeans finally believe their corrupt, thieving, fat ass politicians.
