Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, no, no. Italy is the sick man of Europe. Or was it Germany? Can't be France. Unless maybe France is the sick woman of Europe. That might work. Maybe Europe, except for the bits that are doing well by the accepted metrics and - seven year nation plans and central wage agreements notwithstanding - are therefore  obviously implementing the assorted reforms and things required by the High Church of the Market Most Free and Holy.
