Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And therefore I find it pretty remarkable that this is  practically the first time I bump into this subject on ET. Just when you think you've scratched the surface... More surface. (I've got stocks myself (French ones!) and I did figure out one day that their rating AAA is a Good Thing, but then I shrugged and moved on...)

But define political... Your example sounds more like an economic impact. The implication of your question, however, is that a political impact can become disguised as an economical one.

So in that sense, I'll also eagerly await Friday and the Return of Agnes...

but I've been off sick today so not much brain capacity available, and I'm travelling to London tonight for a computer free-quality time week end. I'll try and pull the guts of a diary early next week.
Plus tehre is a lot of interesting stuff being posted today and should be more over the week end.
