Europe's politicians resemble the cast of a third rate disaster movie...trapped in a Eurozone crisis from which there is no obvious means of escape. Can the continent's leaders stay calm or will rising panic consume them? Stephen Sackur talks to one member of the Brussels political elite, the EU Trade Commissioner Karel de Gucht. His job is to promote Europe's trade agenda around the world - but who is listening when the EU itself is staring over an economic abyss?
