Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But, does doing "the right thing" involve more than the bare minimum to keep in place a system that sends just enough benefits to France to keep her allied with Germany and the rest of the benefits to the export surplus northern countries, primarily Germany? Surely doing "the right thing" couldn't involve giving Greece, Portugal or Ireland a break, could it?
