So we have some more clarity on the state of our credit flows, courtesy of the latest monthly report from the Central Bank. And boy are we sick. At the height of the financial crisis, Northern Rock had 303% loans to deposits ratio. Ireland Inc? 269% absent risk adjustments on short-term deposits, and 323% once short term deposits risk of call-in is set at 10%.
Ouch! Irish financial system doesn’t resemble Quinn Insurance – it resembles Anglo!
