Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Greek protesters could be having some effect. They are to give money to Greece and see the Greek populace reject it?

Just as the accusations that Greeks are layabouts, etc., coming from Merkel had their impact.

How much more punishment would the average Greek citizen have withstood if Bini Smaghi, Weidmann, Merkel and Stark resisted the urge to act smugly superior? Without a doubt, MORE!

The whole edifice is built on mutual mistrust. It will therefore crumble.
