Ireland will be the first test case for Germans.

If German markets crash because of the Irish situation, the ghouls will know they can blackmail Germany's government.

If they can already crash those markets, ala what was done in the U.S. during TARP negotiations, it's a moot exercise of the highest order.

Do you honestly think the stress tests will show anything other than "No problems here. All is well!".

Yields say otherwise.

The results of these things are always driven by what you want to achieve rather than how things actually are.

It's worth bearing in mind that at this point what Irish want to achieve is somewhat different to JCT.

Is there any chance that the stress tests return values that could be damaging or has it be tailored not to return damaging values?

Another potential non event in the big masquerade going on.

TSLA has 200% upside according this Morgan Stanley analyst. Could be a good quick post. Very funny. Zero percent interest rates = crazy things.

If you want to read the extent to which the Irish government has put its country on the hook to the banksters,read the following.Absolutely fucking unbelievable.

Treason doesn't even begin to describe it.

The best thing for Ireland is to remove itself from the failed EU and begin the true repair of their banking system-- it's obvious that any IMF/Eu involvement has thus far left them in a far more worse situation.  The real question is how far Ireland wants to go down the rabbit hole.

For the past couple of days the Irish media has been fed with stories about how reputable BackRock is.

The stress test documents are due to appear here. There should be useful commentary at NAMA Wine Lake, Corner Turned and The Irish Economy.

Unless someone breaks into song then I'm afraid this will pretty much be as expected.

A picture is a thousand words:

This is what Irish banks have lent against,quality or what?Click on the picture to see inside to appreciate the "traditional features",also modern luxuries such as a Radon barrier-to prevent radioactive Radon gas permeating the building,and half the roof is thatch.
