all of the ZH commenters saying that they're sitting with their pop corn...
NOW is the time!
make that popcorn with iodized table salt
I like MSG on my popcorn.
for flavor, better use some of that iodine iodized oil as well
The current coalition consists of SDKU(28), KDH(15), SaS(22) and Most-Hid(14). The opposition Smer has 62 seats. 76 votes are required. If Smer votes for the bill, it still has a chance to pass.
Please NO, let the madness STOP!
Democracy put to a real test, not something we are used to in the 'West'
Hell no. Slovakia is toast for the other euromembers. They'll find a workaround. No crisis, no collapse. BTW: Dexia stock has a quite good day. Not so bad, that is.
The dillusion continues with Amazemennt. Reality is not your strong suit..
You'll see I'm right.
This is just posturing......no an attempt to extort money from the EU before they roll over and vote for the expansion of EFSF.
Or so you hope, because otherwise you get the belt!
they'll approve it, the bribes just aren't big enough yet.
I have to agree. If the last three years of 'Crucial' votes that came with a big 'Will they/won't they' build-up and went having delivered precisely the result TPTB would have wished have taught us anything, it is that all politicians everywhere can be bought/threatened to do as they are told.
I do not believe these guys in Solvakia are any different.
An amazing. unexpected and totally unforseen change of opinion will occur among the Solvakian parliamentarians sometime before the vote actually takes place and it will pass with probably 95% voting for and a few token votes against - just for show.
Agreed. If Slovakia should fail to approve it tomorrow, I would eat my underpants.
If you're a chick, I'd like to see that. Well, maybe. You have a pic, by chance?
Ah, nevermind. Slovakia will fold to TPTB. It was an interesting visual, though.
Slovakia will vote yes when the pot is sweetened, yes. This is typical parliamentary system positioning, where the tiny parties hold the system hostage - Europe is quite familiar with parliamentary democracies, obviously, where people in the US don't understand the minority party having so much control.
No different than the Obama healthcare whore from Louisana and the bum fom Nebraska who talked a good game and held up the deal but then sold out to Pelosi and Reid.
WD, they will fold if those in the SaS party happen to get on a plane.
If they stick to their guns, the Krauts are "taking care" of them...
Just like Iceland?
Sidenote: they can "retry" the vote - up til the EU-Summit -- which (coincidence) was just delayed for a week (-> Oct, 23rd).
Clearly then, they're terrorists and deserve to be dealt with as such. Like those horrible Icelandic.
We are now very, very important on the global stage. Without us you'd all be in deep doo doo. You owe us a million thanks.
Does Slovakia rhyme with Sarajevo?
If it needs to
Gotta love SPIEGEL - Not wanting your group to have to subsidise the lifestyle of some other group is (eeeekkk!) nationalist...
And not to forget racist!
Oh but theyre so fancy and ADVANCED over in the Eurozone though!
Has it just been approved or something? Or more rumours of rumours?
Well Germany and France will change the rules it be OK
Jesus, I don't think I have ever seen such biased questioning.
Yeah - that first question ranks alongside 'Have you stopped beating your wife yet?' as an opening gambit.
This is what is known in Pro-EU circles as 'Fair and balanced reporting', and elsewhere as 'Propaganda'.
seems markets are not taking the Slovakia threat seriously.
'The Markets' are now just hockey-helmeted retards chasing a greased football.
I hope theu pull it off...it would be nice to see one country not slaves to the banksters.
quite the opposite actually...the move on the zeuro is staggering
DAX is soaring 40pts on "it" - after a boring day so far
ALL IS WELL - MOVE ALONG. </sarc>
Dow +300 on the news that Europe is in total collapse! I love this bizzaro market!
USD down 1.5%....and the crowd goes wild!
USD down because EUR is up because Europe banks will be bailed out
back door by the Fed via IMF.
95% these market moves are currency moves.
Am I incorrect here?
Right, the bankrupt will bail out the bankrupt again...uh huh.
Awesome! You hang tough there Slovakia!
"Not change their position"
How can this be. They are politicians....of course they will change their position. Wanna bet?
Well Iceland never changed their position.
Yes only because there was a real possibility that their politicians would have been dragged into the street and beaten to death if they had. Slovakia's citizens probably aren't that motivated nor was any other country in the world from what I can see except for maybe Greece, although even that is debatable. Even my beloved kin the Irish rolled over and took it up the pooper without nary a groan. Pathetic. Slovak SaS will cave when their price is met. You'll see.
Yea we'll see about that.
Not to worry, Slovakia will turn out well after the dust from the collapsing Euro settles! Germany has their back! Go Duetschland!
