Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You cannot have Greece, Spain and Italy out of the Euro and Portugal in. And you need to count Cyprus too.

I went by countries with political movements anti austerity, but yes that sounds reasonable.

And it would give Bulgaria and all other countries that are larger then that a free veto when the Mediterranean block is opposed.

Courtesy of the German government there is a Majority Calculator. Playing around, the only real effect of the population limit is if Germany and France and one more of UK, Italy and Spain are opposed to something. Otherwise I can't find any combination where it matters. So that one can be ignored unless Germany and France consists the nucleus of the blocking minority.
