are the problems in Spain going to eclipse what has happened so far in Greece, and potentially pull the EU apart?

I miss all the fun! lol
Spain is in serious trouble now because of all the corruption their officials have involved themselves with ever since they joined the EU.
Some people got very rich as they lined their own pockets. Now, thanks to their greed, the country has debts it has no hope of repaying because the money given them by the EC was not wisely spent.
The ONLY things cheaper to buy in Spain than the UK are booze and tobacco. Everything else has shot up in price or been taxed to death by a government desperate for cash, yet wages there are lower.
Plenty of unemployed people there have no family to live with or depend on, and find themselves homeless, hungry and penniless.
The tide seems to be sweeping across Europe. It was bound to happen. When you have an unelected, undemocratic behemoth like the EU there are going to have a huge amounts of snouts in the trough, but now the largesse is drying up and they are being exposed. And as usual its the ordinary citizens of European countries who will be left to pick up the pieces and pay the ferryman
What was it I read an article about the other day?
Ah yes, McVities have changed the recipe for making digestive biscuits, and the new biscuits are not so popular, being more brittle and less tasty.
They have changed it ahead of EC regulations banning the use of trans-fats.
That should be a country decision, not an EU decision, IMO.
They have way too much power.
What amazes me is the way individual countries jump to their tune for no apparent reason. Italy sent a terror suspect back to North Africa even though the EU ruled against the deportation, and the EU found they actually could do nothing about it. But the UK can't seem to summon the backbone to deport Qatada back to Jordan to stand trial - in fact we give him a bigger house courtesy of the tax payer and pay out about £5 million a year on protecting him.
It's time more countries/companies/individuals just told the EU where to stick it, before they have an EU army at their disposal
But McVities tamper with our biscuits at their peril, just as the coalition tax our pasties at their peril!
