Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, it looks like the Eurogroup President will be sacked by his own electors. That's something. They'll have to find another nonentity to do their dirty work.

I admire the efforts of the ombudsperson, but it's clear she has little power of constraint over this non-institution.

It's clear that the next treaty (assuming there is one), or rather, the EU constitution, needs to create formal organs of governance to replace the Eurogroup clusterf*ck. Parliamentary, not only intergovernmental, with an obligation of as much transparency as is functionally possible.
