    We can all think of occasions when we found out important news from a friend. It happened to me with the death of Princess Diana in 1997, on a lazy Sunday morning with a phone call from a relative - something of an embarrassment given I worked for a breaking news website at the time.

    These days this...

    Eurozone leaders may have bought themselves a little time but what happens next will have profound implications for both democracy and the future of the European project.
