Boris Johnson's Political Prospects, A Great Week For The Irish Exchequer & Revolut In Ireland
Play • 52 min
First up this week on Taking Stock Mandy speaks to the Guardian's Will Hutton about Boris Johnson's political prospects which appear to be hanging by a thread. Battle-scarred Boris suffered another tough week and this was a bruising one for the prime minister. Positive news on the Irish Exchequer front this week, not so much on the inflation front, unfortunately. Mandy caught up with leading Economist Dan O'Brien on the implications this will have on the Irish economy. Finally, the online banking app Revolut has seen massive increases in its customer base here in Ireland. Here on Taking Stock Mandy asks are Irish Banks and the Irish Banking System creating the right environment for Fintech companies to operate here. Personal Finance Editor with the Irish Independent Charlie Weston walks us through why the service is so popular.
