Taoiseach Enda Kenny yesterday told an important group of politicians in Bavaria that a deal on bank legacy debt would be a one-off for Ireland and would not set a precedent.

So we’re clear on that, then?

CSU officials declined to comment in detail on ongoing bank debt talks, though CSU leader Horst Seehofer said it was important to agree “the necessary additional measures to ensure reform success”.

“As long as they stick to their reform path, it’s justified to support boosting jobs and growth,” he said.

Ri-iiight.
