    Putting the money in only to immediately take it out again smacks of clever accounting. Too clever. The UK wants no part, nor the US.

    The Euro is looking like a dead duck :-/

    “The Euro is looking like a dead duck :-/ ”

    The Euro isn't only looking like a dead duck, it is a very sick duck that will die (When the Germans say and press on the red button to kill it, what will happen). Oh wait there is more, and it's not only the Euro, it's also the British pound (being killed by suicidle british bankers) and the US dollar.

    note: US dollar is only on paper the world's reserve currency, but not for long. In reality, other nations already abbonden the US dollar by trading and saving in their own currencies and gold.
