in 2013. Clearly, the Socialists have no intention of hitting the 3% target, as this is an absolutely unrealistic forecast they are pinning their budget to.

A big gamble, with a big press conference and P/R to go along with it, but one wonders what will be the next moves expected once it becomes clear that the 3% target will not in fact be reached.

It's a matter of months, at best, that this becomes clear, and then, Holland's gamble to punt the issue down the road will start showing whether ultimately it pays off or it does not.

I for one am pessimistic.
