Epic Fail: #EUSSR Race to the Abyss

They don't do what's necessary, but whatever happens to be possible under a compromise. Case in point: headline: "EZ leaders discussing Greek haircut: Germany wants 60%, France 40%, compromise around 50%, no decision yet" (update). Government by compromize is always weak.

By that time all will be over. The Germans cannot support the already tight fund by themselves (and a few small fry). The summit planned for Wednesday may be postponed till Thursday. Eagerly awaiting Merkozy presser -
