Euro-blindness was the order of the day. Things did happen in the Euro-world, but hardly anyone noticed. (Nothing in the Wail, Express, something at the end of one piece in the Torygraph, the Independent apparently had a small piece, but it disppaered pretty quickly. The only one who did write about it was - strangely enough - the FT.) So what was the story? Guess one could do worse than read Zerohedge: The Silent Anschluss: Germany Formally Requests That Greece Hand Over Its Fiscal Independence
Eventually Greece answered: Greece Politely Declines German Annexation Demands
One blogger (other than this blog
) laments the navel gazing of the British media: A GREEK TRAGEDY REACHES ITS DENOUEMENT: but in the UK, there is only the triumph of polemics over news
Same hopeless, mindless news reporting in Sweden. After the usual biff-baff-bang reporting on the "political game" (Would the Social Dims side with the other opposition parties and give the governing Alliance a black eye by saying no to the fiscal euro pact or not? No, they sided with the Gov't, of course.) the whole question died, and the fact that new events that should affect our decision makers (but won't) occurred is neither here nor there, apparently.
