Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
If there is even a vote on the 15th I would rather expect it to come later in the evening, at least after the close of markets in NYC. The tunnel is bizarre enough to be true and would most likely be discussed on blogs. And while the MPs would certainly be advised to have some kind of plan if they plan to vote for more austerity, especially on June 15 and with the square filled with thousands of people, I would expect it would more likely involve a police attack, perhaps supplemented by elements of the military. And, yes, zero hedge is over close to the austerian/libertarian position, which has not kept them from reporting on many aspects of the GFC that have seemed bizarre but turned out to be true. The crowd could be to the tunnel as the frying pan is to the fire. I would not want to go into it under such circumstances, especially given my knees.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere." (But it helps!)
