Our political parties had a debat about the bailout today the outcome was:

1: The majority will keep supporting the bailout pack.
2: There are some parties that wanna have a temporary euro for troubled countries.

(Countries can be asked to step over to the temporary euro, they will stay there till they are ready to step back to the normal euro)

There was also a poll for the support off the euro in the Netherlands, and only 1/3 wanna step back to the old currency.
More people wanna keep the euro than before the crisis.

It's good that the Dutch broadly support the Euro, and that they want it to be a strong currency too.

If it were possible, a "temporary" Euro would mean a two-speed Euro. I doubt countries slipping back into one would have much prospect of re-entering the Euro proper. Furthermore, who would organise it? And who'd be bothered to oversee it?

Incidentally, what's the source of the report?

The poll? The sourch for the poll is: EenVandaag :: Tweederde maakt zich zorgen om eurocrisis.

What a weird, impossible and pointless idea.
It was the semi-fascist and racist-populist PVV party, who generally make no sense at all. That didn't stop them getting 17% of the vote.

Worryingly, the Dutch government does take them seriously because they use them to prop up their minority coalition.

Irish bailout may bring down Dutch Gov

€2.7 bl coming from the Dutch Government may not be passed in their parliament,the amount is coming directly from their own budget.
The Gov is only 2 months old and is also a coalition with a 1 seat majority and 1 partner,, the party of freedom wishing not to support.
Another notch to add to the maFFia's belt of ************************ up's
A lot done, more to do!

The pvv have said that they won't let it take down the current goverment.
So that means that the goverment is here to stay, and since most of the parties support the euro and the bailout there is no problem at all.

The bottom line for European Union is: the constituent states had little in common except greed. Their people had little in common except, in the best cases, broken English language.

If you don't want to see what Europeans have in common, that's your prerogative. For those who have more open minds, they are at liberty to observe that most European states share many common values and attitudes. Many individuals go to the trouble of learning other languages to engage with the fascinating histories, cultures and peoples of their neighbours. Without this drive, there'd be no hope for an enterprise like the EU.

I've personally taken the trouble to learn other languages, and in a sense there's no better way to get into the heart of other peoples, and to understand what we share, as well as what makes different cultures distinct and worth preserving. That's the power of positive thinking. It's diametrically opposed to the deeply negative sentiment displayed in your utterly mean-spirited post.
