Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for writing this, it's exactly what I was thinking.

If the financial sector needs support because of its strategic importance, then the need for support of other sectors should be evaluated on the strategic importance criterion: which is something free-market ideology prohibits.

So do Barroso and team practise what they preach, do they even believe in it? Or is it just a handy doctrine masking a power and money grab? More to the point, isn't that what it appears fairly clearly to be right now?
