Round and round it goes, where it stops?! Nobody knows!

Place your (irrelevant) bets.

Per MW: "Markets await the German vote" LOL, if we're so certain, DAX should've been rallying, or it could be yet another shamanistic ceremony the market undertakes, before we move in either direction.

Why don't they use an electronic button system? Then we could know the result immediately.

At some point in the future, we will not need a govt like we have today..as we could all vote on each legislation.

Referendum on everything.

Brilliant idea. Since we have the internet, that will be possible in the near future.

brilliant idea.

because each citizen will have read and understood each piece of legislation, and thus be  fully capable of reaching a rational decision.

there's no chance at all they will just skim the title and say, oh, "PATRIOT ACT", that sounds nice, let me vote yes for that one.

at least in our currect system, legislators have lobbyists to explain the bill to them, and then make rational decisions as to whose bribe to accept.

Because it's a farce. When you pay for a circus ticket, you want it to go on for as long as possible, provided the entertainment is great.

So Bertwinkie announces the next free handout minutes before this farce begins?  Gee, wonder how this movie ends?

and the other shoe, and so it begins and all that other weak tripe that is supposed to give weight to a situation that was clear before it began.

Approx 425 votes in favour and 85 against, according to BBC.  Response of markets seems ... muted.

Via RSQWK - "523 German MPs back more powers from EFSF, 85 against, 3 abstentions according to parliamentary sources"

Rather unclimatic response in the EUR, thanks for the two hanging men on the hourly chart.

We need to get the guillotine (retired in 1945) back to Germany for these crony bastards.
Basically we are the point where the average German starts to despise members of parliament.

Kick the Anglo-Americans out of the country first. 60 years of occupation is enough now.

This is weird, BBC coverage has gone off air, and Financial Times says it will take another hour to count the votes?

Politicians are the same the World over. Fuck ups.

This was never in doubt.

All the strong rhetoric coming out of Germany before this vote have once again been proven to be nothing more than hollow chest pounding, as they sell their citizens down the road. Good luck carrying the dead carcass of the eurozone on the german people's back, their kids and grandkids will hopefully have the balls to revolt and end this entire corrupt system.

Theres gonna be another war before they get done paying the last one off.  Right now somewhere a strong man is being groomed just for that purpose and the sheeple who just got butt-fucked will follow him into more butt-fucking. History repeats and repeats and repeats.
