A draft paper a senior EU executive suggests that also senior debt holders would also take losses. This may apply to Allied Irish Banks (nyse:aib) and Bank of Ireland (nyse:ire).
Both AIB and the Bank of Ireland have already “enjoyed” such bad rumors, but now that it appears in an official paper, it means trouble. It seems that some in the EU are responding to the anger felt in the member countries – people aren’t willing to put more taxpayer money in order to cover for the banks’ mistakes.
