Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Some guy at Zero Hedge has an idea about how to resolve the issue, and by god, it's far less retarded than most of the ideas thrown around by Serious People.

What we really need is an ultra high stakes World Cup football match between Spain and Germany.

The bet would go something like this-- if the Spaniards win, Germany funds the full 800 billion euro bailout package.

If Germany wins?  They own Spain.  And will get the option of shipping the 20% or so unemployed to Montana.  Don't worry, Barry O will put them on a new brand of hopey/changey socialism.

And if there's a tie?  They'll be no tie!  Why do they even let these teams do that, anyway?

And in other news, I'm considering changing my signature line below which I've had since 2006 to "Rights issue!!!!!!!!!111111"

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
