The European Score card

Posted on

It's been a long evening in Europe.

I'm not referring to the fact I'm in Helsinki.

Or the fact that Ireland lost to Spain.

This is about the economy.

In the UK £80bn more is to be injected into the economy - which basically covers 70% of the deficit for the next year. Don't be fooled into thinking there's any other reason for this. It's just a cover for the Bank of England lending cash to the Treasury.

Spain says the Euro's nearly over.

Germany is saying it doesn't give the proverbial.

The consequence? It may not just be the Irish football team heading home soon. A lot more trouble may be doing so too.

The cliff edge is getting closer by the hour. In that respect alone Spain may be right.
