Eurointelligence: Aftermath of a "surreal" summit
Leader of Irish Labour Party calls Jean-Claude Trichet a civil servant

Reuters picked up a nice quote from Eamon Gilmore, the leader of the Irish Labour Party, and likely to be the next Irish deputy PM. In an Irish radio interview, he said about Jean-Claude Trichet, who rejects a renegotiation of the Irish loan agreement with the EU/IMF:  "Mr. Trichet is a European civil servant. He's a very important European civil servant and any civil servant will of course always stick to the plan that is there at the moment, just as he will stick to the plan that is renegotiated when it is renegotiated."
