IMF head Christine Lagarde said the €10 billion bailout deal agreed last night for Cyprus was "a comprehensive and credible plan" to help restore trust in the banking system. Under the deal all bank deposits under €100,000 will be secured. The deal will affect deposits in the two largest banks - Laiki and the Bank of Cyprus - accounting for about 40 percent of total deposits in the country. Joining Pat from Cyprus was journalist Maria Kagkelidou and in studio, Economist Tony Foley of DCU.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-pat-kenny/programmes/2013/0325/378280-today-with-pat-kenny/?clipid=1037918

Now that the dust has settled on the government decision to end the state guarantee of the banks some commentators are asking if the timing was right and if any long term advantage will come at too high a price for tax payers in the short term. This is because the banks were paying one billion euro per year for the guarantee and given that it has now been removed that revenue tap for the exchequer has been turned off.

Well, it has emerged that 40,000 (around 1 in 7) public servants face a cut in their basic wage under the new Croke Park II deal but despite earlier reports, there will be no compulsory redundancies. It was Shay Cody, Chairman of The Public Services committee of ICTU who last night confirmed that no compulsory redundancies appeared in the final agreement and he joined Pat as did Tony Foley from the school of business at DCU.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-pat-kenny/programmes/2013/0226/369624-today-with-pat-kenny-tuesday-26th-february-2013/?clipid=1008096
Seemingly good news from the Eurozone as finance ministers yesterday agreed in principle to extend the maturity of Ireland’s rescue loans, a move with potential to cut the cost the bailout by billions of euro.
