German frustration over Britainâs approach to the eurozone crisis erupted on Tuesday after a close ally of Angela Merkel accused the UK of selfishness just days before a meeting between the two countriesâ leaders in Berlin. In a speech to members of the German chancellorâs CDU party, Volker Kauder, its parliamentary leader, criticised Britain for opposing a European tax on financial transactions. To applause, he said it was not acceptable that the UK was âonly defending its own interestsâ rather than that of the wider EU. http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/25ef197c-0f90-11e1-88cc-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1dW1SCanw Uk defending its own interest rather than of the wide EU? Never ever! London is "only" defending The City and gives a sh1t about anything else. The braniacs stupid attacks on sovereigns in continental Europe and a Tobin tax should bode well for "City jobs". Bye, bye bonuses. Bye, bye London real estate prices. Bye, bye.
