Sunday a.m: Reading the Eurozone crisis
You go away, come back a week later and the Germans have banned short-selling, and, globally, everybody is now short selling the Euro. Meanwhile the Sunday papers are full of everything from analysis to diatribe about the future of the Euro. Here's my take, which went to press Tuesday night in the New Statesman.
Of all the column centimetres devoted to the Euro this morning, if I had to read only one article it would be Peter Boone and Simon Johnson's take in the Telegraph. It goes to the heart of the social and strategic implications and is pretty pessimistic.
Normal service resumes tomorrow, with coverage of the 6bn in-year cuts programme, which for all the sound and fury pre-election is now described by the plain-tie Coalition leaders as "modest".
