    That sounds suspiciously like something your average student leftist would say in a bid to sound cool and as if they knew what they were talking about.

    'Germany will bail out every Euro country before collapsing'

    If this is German government thinking, Germans will be working til they drop.

    True, but the next German federal election isn't due until October 2013 and I can't see Germans rioting on the streets. Perhaps the German government doesn't need to convince Germans in order to go ahead with more bail outs?

    True but even so. Germany is using the bailouts to punish these countries. Look at the high intrest rate that has been put on the loans. For other bailouts its likely to be higher meaning that these countries may end up struggling to pay their debts causing them to default and thus causing another major crisis in the EU

    Could be purely self-interest on Germany's part. Without the single currency, and with the reintroduction of the Mark, German exports would increase in price, but then if the eurozone countries are bankrupted by debt they aren't going to be able to afford to buy German goods anyway.

    It's kafkaesque.

    Tbh from what I have seen of Germany they are happy as long as the EU works for them. As you say I think its all self interest. I suppose they still have big markets to trade with in Asia and America but with out the EU its going to cause shock waves across the globe, which is why I do not understand those calling for the EU to collapse it would damage the UK just as much as France and other EU countries.

    I wonder for how much longer the German people will think the EU is working for them. The German people might decide their interests are not the same as German politicians and large German companies. Maybe they don't want to work til they drop!

    And I'm not one of the people calling for the EU to collapse. I just don't think the UK should a part of it. IMO, EU membership damages the interests of the people of the UK.

    But without the EU trading restrictions with other countries, e.g china, will be lifted so we can trade with them instead.

    This isn't scaremongering. It's reality.

    As each day passes the scale of the eurozone debt crisis only seems to deepen. Comfortable illusions of the euro having been saved are swept aside. The list of those who might need rescuing only lengthens.

    All eyes were on Spain and Portugal, but then doubts began emerging about Belgium and Italy ...

    A single currency cannot exist for EU member states until they have one economic policy. Maybe at some point in the future they will, but they haven't yet. The EU was too impatient.
