How shite is Dublin.
So shite that the Frankfurt and Paris offices are going to be branches of the Dublin office.
The bank’s new euro rates trading desk is likely to be based in one of its other European offices, such as Frankfurt or Paris. These will soon be converted from branches of its London headquarters to become offshoots of its new Irish subsidiary.

"Our new head quarters will be in Dublin"

Traders "yeah not a chance we can get the misses to live there"

"How about we open branches in somewhere civilised " ?

"Ok"

It's just Bimbo trying to change the question. If, as the FT article states, the Irish office is a separate legal entity set up under Irish law, well then the CBOI will be the regulating banking authority of it, and of any branches it has whether in Paris or Frankfurt.

But Bimbo already knows this and is just playing silly buggers.

Full branches are regulated locally. If not good luck with French based derivative traders with an English bank backed by the Irish governemnt credit. :lol:

Speaking of which I see that Davis is making an ignorant arse of himself by claiming that Irish government policy on the Irish border has been strongly influenced by Sinn Féin.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

A FG government influenced by SF !

Just read Davis's comments. First I thought the man was a complete idiot, but then I remembered somebody else had made similar comments a couple of months ago (IBS I think). Might just be an easy way of playing to the cheap seats at best, or at worst an ugly attempt to scapegoat.

Negotiations mustn't be going too well for poor old Davis and his team.

Still there is such an amount of willful ignorance in his speech as reported that it must be nearly time for the British Ambassador to have coffee in Iveagh House with Coveney and be given the Great Big Book of Irish Politics as a gift for Davis (and BoJo, and IDS) to read.

Unreal level of ignorance from Davis. If he really thinks that Fine Gael are looking over their shoulder electorally at Sinn Fein, then the UK is really screwed in the brexit negotiations :shock:

What next? Will he blame the fisheries capitulation on the Newfoundland local elections?

Even worse is that corbynista prick Gardiner saying that the GFA is a shibboleth!

Jaysis, you would have to feel incredibly sorry for the 80%+ of UK citizens who wouldn't vote for militant labour or the delusional UKIP wing of the tories. Their future is being decided by loons on both sides of the political divide, while the centre seems to be utterly voiceless.

Just go a read a little bit.

You dont need to make an arse of yourself on a daily basis here.

And by the way, calling the 1291 entity swiss confederation is wrong too so there you go. But then again, you have no shame whatsoever.

Given the prevailing winds are West to East I reckon the EU have every reason to want the British nuclear industry to remain as safe as it is now.

It may well be possible, but in the case of Davis, BoJo, IDS, R-M etc., I really don't think probable. R-M was recently wittering on about how the Presidential election, due later on this year, was affecting the governments position on Brexit.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

It's just willful ignorance. And as Furlong alluded to will just play straight into the EU negotiators hands.
