Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
From a PIGGY perspective, we are going surely into one. It if draws others (the proper Euro countries, not the lesser ones), then maybe (maybe, maybe, maybe) a proper response will be forged.

We could pick up where we left off in May 2010:
"Sarkozy went as far as banging his fist on the table and threatening to leave the euro," one unnamed Zapatero colleague told the paper. "That obliged Angel Merkel to bend and reach an agreement."

The French had Spain, Italy, Portugal and the European Commission lined up behind them. On the other side stood Germany, ranged alongside the Dutch, the Austrians and the Finns, all quietly hoping Merkel would prevail.


Sarkozy's famous victory is less than final - and he might yet regret his showdown with a chancellor of Germany.
