Speaking 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)
Pacer Deepak Chahar made his debut for India in the third T20I against England at Bristol on Sunday. The 25-year-old received the cap from India skipper Virat Kohli as he replaced Kuldeep Yadav. He’s the 76th T20I player for India.India made one more change apart from Chahar’s inclusion. Siddarth Kaul replaced Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was forced to sit out due to a back problem.The month of July has been very luck for the Rajasthan bowler as just last week he received his maiden call up to the Indian team after Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the T20I series due to a finger injury.Chahar was already in England at the time of his call up playing for India A squad in the 50-over tri-series, featuring England Lions and West Indies A.India vs England, 3rd T20I: Live Cricket ScoreIn three matches of the series, Chahar took 16 wickets including a five-wicket haul against West Indies A.Chahar came into the limelight following his good show with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) where he picked up 10 wickets in 12 games and was also their second-most economical bowler (economy rate: 7.28).Meanwhile, India are aiming to win their sixth T20I series on the trot.India won the first match of the three-match series by eight wickets in Manchester, but England bounced back with a five-wicket win in Cardiff to level the series 1-1.India’s unbeaten run stretches back to September 2017.The last time India lost a bilateral T20I contest was against West Indies in July 2017, albeit that was a one-off game. In fact, India’s last series loss with more one T20I game also came against the same opposition, at Florida in August 2016.advertisementIn between those two losses to West Indies, India beat England 2-1 in a three-match T20I series at home in January 2017. That contest is notable because India were 1-0 down, and came back to win the series with Chahal taking career-best 6-25 in the series decider at Bengaluru.A series win would also help India climb to number two in the ICC T20I rankings, relegating England to number seven.
