Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
My guess is that it would be politically much easier to gloss over a default, using some twist that may probably be found in some treaty and then, in a few months, prepare a solution through a new treaty (as for the deficit and debt rules). Spain would be in a political mess, sure, but this wouldn't be the end of the European Union, as would be excluding a member.

I personally pray for Ireland to default first, because that would weaken the anglo-group of countries in the EU political game.
