Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
See afew's German Uprising quoting the FT:
... it was left to Gesine Lötzsch, co-leader of the Linke party, to warn that all the efforts at "saving the euro" were really about "saving our banks from their bad debts."

Accusing the government of failing to take action to regulate the financial markets, she challenged Ms Merkel: "It is time for you to admit: are you negotiating on behalf of German citizens, or are you negotiating on behalf of German banks?"
