Quotes

"The ECB must act in view of the rip-off interest rates being charged on new mortgage loans and SMEs, and the failure of the main banks in Ireland to pass on successive ECB rate cuts to SMEs, variable rate mortgage holders and other personal borrowers."
Deputy Michael McGrath stated, "The ECB’s main refinancing rate stands at a historic low of 0.05% following a series of rate cuts. While the customers of Irish banks on tracker products have benefitted directly from these rate reductions, others have been denied the benefit of the rate cuts. SMEs, variable rate mortgage holders and other personal borrowers continue to pay interest rates in Ireland that are dramatically out of line with other eurozone countries."
...increase these rates yet further, when the bank of England lifts its lead rate? Yes, says economist James Carrick of insurer Legal & General. "Banks need margins and increased profitability. The margins on mortgages were too thin before the crisis – that was part of the problem."
