The bank’s subordinated debt was cut to Caa1, which reflects that the bondholders will have have to pay for it to be bailed out... Standard & Poor’s, a rival credit agency, said the cost of saving the Dublin-based lender may rise to as much as 35bn euros. The Irish government has already pledged around 20bn euros to shore up Anglo Irish. ''
