“Mega Plan to save Europe”

The EU’s emergency fund has made the headlines in the international press.

Europe’s 500 billion euro emergency fund has made the front page of several newspapers today, including The International Herald Tribune.
 
The Greek newspaper Kathimerini says the EU has learnt something out of the crisis: that member states must all stick together.
A cartoon illustrates the situation well, with the German Chancellor running to rescue the Greek leader George Papandreou.
 
Angela Merkel is also on the front page of Hamburger Morgen Post. Her coalition was defeated yesterday, as it lost its majority in the upper house. Many analysts say German voters wanted to punish her for backing the rescue package to Greece.
 
According to The Daily Express, the Brits are angry because they are expected to pour billions of pounds into the new European loan despite not being part of the Euro.
 
 
Great Britain’s political future is uncertain. The country still doesn’t know who the next Prime Minister will be as none of the main parties secured an outright majority in Thursday’s election. The Daily Telegraph talks about “a nation in limbo” and The Wall Street Journal says “Britain elected nobody”.
 
And finally, The Times newspaper reports about a 17 year old girl trapped in the body of a one year old baby. Scientists are currently studying Brooke Greenberg’s DNA. They hope to find treatments for age related diseases.
