Troika bank Holiday
Q THE bailout team of supervisors took the day off yesterday because it was a bank holiday in Brussels.
All Saints' Day resulted in our guardian angels from the EU putting the examination of the bailout on hold for the weekend.
Department of Finance mandarins found the troika supervisory team on the final bailout mission had disappeared from Merrion Street due to a Belgian bank holiday.
The urgency with which the finalisation of the bailout needed to be teased out suddenly went into a lull.
The current mission is the final quarterly visit of the troika as the bailout finishes next month.
