Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Imagine that, say, Credit Agricole went down, and the French government decided only to pay out deposit insurance on savings of customers of French branches, but not of branches CA had in other EU countries, for which CA did not have to pay into their deposit insurance schemes because they were just branches, not subsidiaries. Now add that there are EU laws that specifically state that any such discrimination is forbidden and that there is a minimum amount the French deposit insurance has to pay out to its foreign customers in the EU.

We might start wondering what this single market in the EU is actually about.
