Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It would be better if the use of such terms were without debate not accepted.

The fact that Migeru is objectively correct on the substance and has been making accurate predictions on this matter since 2008 makes most people here willing to tolerate antics that would not be tolerated from less valuable contributors.

Because being objectively, empirically correct actually matters around here.

>The "real ECB and the real euro" are simply your version of them. Others have a right to have a different version.<

But there is an objective reality.

Which is that the ECB is handling this entire crisis in precisely the same way the BuBa handled the 1993 crisis.

The law is a statement of intent, not an objective reality. The European Council can propose a treaty change that repeals the law of gravity, it can pass referenda in every single member state and be adopted with the force of national constitution everywhere on the subcontinent...

... but rocks still fall down when you drop them, and the BuBa still has an influence that is out of all proportion to the value of its contributions.
