This is a Golden Oldie of mine from P.ie started on the 25th March 2013, I brought it here at the request of some ex P.ie Posters.

You can judge for yourselves by way of the recent Elections in Greece, Spain & Portugal that I was indeed correct & the Eurozone is continuing to tear itself apart.

"Whilst the Deefster warned ya'll over the past 2 years that the Crisis was worsening - Brendy Boy & Co regularly claimed all would be ok.

According to Brendy Boy now it's pretty "fkin far from Ok"...

Over the next few weeks & months I will be updating readers about the horrific state of almost Universal Insolvency within the EU.

Recently it was highlighted that EU Unemployment was 2 & 1/2 times higher than Brazil's - this crisis is going nowhere fast.

The EZ is being propped up by Toxic Derivatives & unserviceable loans.

Keep an eye on Slovenia!

I've never said the Euro would collapse but the level of Toxic Overleving will ensure that this Rollercoaster will continue for a good while yet & may bring down the EU itself...

The Term "Eurozone" is a multi-misnomer.




The "Euro" is not the Currency for neither the European Union nor the Continent of Europe.
The "Zone" is a series of Sectors &/or States truncated from each other, geographically
💣Cyprus💣 is in ASIA!



Asking Price Drops in Green- Dublin clearly still in Freefall 12 Years on...

















“Minibots,” a proposed parallel currency in Italy, could circulate with euro notes, but some critics say that would violate European Union regulations.

Suggested designs for Italy's proposed “minibots,” or mini bills of treasury, are far different from the bland neutrality of euro bank notes.
Backs feature Italian cathedrals and other historic buildings, while the faces show well-known figures, among them several that might be controversial.


















"Keep the Recovery going" & "Stop Brexit"... ffs...

"Greece back on agenda as creditors demand pension reforms"


Swift completion of the first bailout review is vital for Greek debt relief to move ahead

The surprise election of Kyriakos Mitsotakis last weekend as leader of the New Democracy party could spell trouble for Tsipras and for political unity.

The son of a former prime minister and member of a well-known political dynasty, the 47-year-old is widely seen as a serious political alternative to Tsipras.

With the Greek government having seen their majority reduced to three, cross-party political buy-in for reform measures is essential for the successful completion of the first review mission.

What may prove even more difficult for Greece are the fiscal targets demanded by lenders.

The EU cannot afford another crisis any time soon.

"Noonan and Howlin risked economic recovery to deliver 'political budget' says EC report"

The “recovery is threatened by recent decisions which affect the path to sustainable budgetary position”.

While the budget is “broadly compliant” with EU fiscal rules, there are risks of some deviation from the appropriate adjustment path, they say.

That improved tax revenues are driven by “better than expected if volatile corporate tax receipts”, while increases in spending were permanent.

Budget 2016 “could have been more supportive of growth”.

On the spending side, the commission concludes that raising public sector pay and increasing a range of social welfare payments “could have been better targeted”.

The commission says reducing the USC and postponing the self-assessing of property values “undermines the sustainability of revenue in the medium term”.

In November, the ECB told Novo it would indeed need to raise some €1.4 billion in fresh capital which the bank initially said would come from asset sales.

A little over a month later, Portugal’s central bank essentially just gave up.

On December 29, the bank announced it was transferring €2 billion in NB senior notes back to Banco Espirito Santo which, like a ghost skyscraper in China, is set for demolition.

In other words, Novo Banco plugged the €1.4 billion hole by essentially declaring €2 billion in bonds null and void.

Instead of dissolving the EZ & EU sensibly the Eurocrats kept it all together & attracted Islamoterrorists through Porous Borders...

Will the Goldman Sachs/European Union Rapefactory insist we wear "Stab Vests" next to allow the Islamoterror Cell Minorities to uphold their Cultural Rights? :mad:

or maybe it will be "Anger Management Classes for ISIS"... :rolleyes:

RE: Brendan Keenan's "Bleak Omens" for Europe!

This will be the Doomporn - EZ/EU Routine Financial Armageddon/"New Norm" Thread.

"The Invasion of Europe" thread I will use for Routine Migration Outrages.

"The Defeated EU" Thread will be for the heaviest aspects of all the Crises & disputes which have the Vile EU at the Cliff's Edge   :p
