first_imgSpeaking in the Dáil after the Minister for Finance announced that there is to be a further €24 billion pumped into the defunct banking system Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty has said that it is the ordinary people who are suffering for the failings of Government to deal with bank debt.The Donegal South West TD fumed: “It beggars believe that this so-called alternative Government is to pump another €24 billion into the defunct banking system.“This open-ended commitment to cover bank losses plainly exceeds the fiscal capacity of the state. The losses of the banking sector have become the losses of the taxpayer. Bank debt has become sovereign debt. And that is the problem and it is the ordinary citizens who are suffering for these failings. “The reality is that this Government is continuing on with the reckless policies of the previous Fianna Fáil Government. Like Fianna Fáil they have placed more priority on bailing out bank bondholders than bailing out ordinary people trying to make ends meet.”Mr Doherty said ordinary people will suffer as a result of the move.He told Dail: “Hundreds of thousands of people are fighting for their survival. Nearly half a million people are unemployed. 50,000 of our young people are leaving our shores each year. A growing number of people face eviction. Families struggle to feed their children and provide warmth. These are the people Fine Gael and Labour want to foot the bill for the banks.“The Government has not acted in the interests of the people today; it has acted purely in the interest of the banks. “There should be no choice: you need to impose aggressive burden sharing on unguaranteed bonds. You need to go after bondholders.”more to followBANKS CRISIS: GOVERNMENT IS WASTING ANOTHER €24 BILLION – DOHERTY was last modified: March 31st, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
