The EU is fucked. They may save the € but they'll lose the crown, or they'll save the crown and lose the € as we know it. Chermany (and maybe a Scandi nation or two, plus the Dutchies) out, or all of the weak currencies out. I give it until the end of 2012 for the bond rolls to really kick in and destroy it from without, or Chermany has to roll over and back the ECB printing money.
Curiously, one thing that has united people from both left and right and inbetween blogs and online newspaper comments has been the anti democratic behaviour of the EU komissars, bullying two elected Prime Ministers into resignation. What kind of black operations unit must they have to force that? Bribery, disclosure or what?
I've said it before - if both the left and right can find an agreement then something smells bad.
MBW gets cut up on the 17th. Hopefully just the ACL reconstructed (no cast, recovery time of ~3 weeks to allowed to walk short distances, ACL and LCL = 3 months of being bedridden).
Anything I've missed since I've been away?
