Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

The minor problem, is that democracy might get in the way. The EU-politicians-puppets-of-banksters have until now been able to control the populace (both in debtor and creditor countries), but the pain that is being inflicted might be too much and somebody might rebel (Finland almost did it, lets hope somebody does it)...

The problem is that the only way the populace can reject the current plans is through more or less racist national-populist movements who largely have the wrong target and mostly focus anger on brown people rather than banks.
