Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

When Austria's finance minister announces plans to privatize the railways and build a social security fund with the proceeds...
Ah, Austria too? The Greek PM said words to the same effect (not limited to the railways). They're on a selling spree which they aim to portray as a way to keep the SS system out of trouble (they're meeting unexpected resistance too, but that's a diary of its own). Do EU governments have the same political advisors or what?

BTW, I'd be very much interested in a diary on these current plans, if you have the time.
