Los «socios europeos» sin así: La Unión Europea negó a nueve de sus países miembros ayuda financiera. Mejor será que pongamos las barbas a remojar.
Hilariously – from the school of, you have to laugh or you’ll cry – little José is saying that eastern Europe doesn’t need special treatment (i.e., a €190 billion loan) as it can draw on €15.4 billion in the EU’s balance-of-payments assistance fund. The countries are also eligible for €7 billion of accelerated infrastructure subsidies, he said. «We are one union, not two unions or three unions,» bleats Barroso.
Now, let’s get this straight. The eastern/central countries want €190 billion (they would actually prefer €300 billion) to stave off a fate worse than Ambrose. Little José is saying they can dip into a fund of €15.4 billion shared between all member states, with a top-up of €7 billion. And that solves the problem?
La Unión Europea acabará como la Torre de Babel que tanto les gusta.
