Slovakia votes against increasing €uro bailout fund

The Slovakian government has voted against increasing the size of the €uro bailout fund tonight.

The proposal was rejected by 21 votes and resulted in a vote of no confidence in the europhile Slovakian government.

According to the BBC, a new government will be formed soon and a second vote taken which is expected to pass.  For the sake of the Greek people and everyone else suffering because their governments tied them into the political vanity project that is the €uro, let's hope the Slovakian government drags it out for long enough to force a Greek default and the collapse of the single currency.  A poll on the Bloggers4UKIP Facebook page shows that more than three quarters of people who voted don't believe the EU will survive the collapse of the €uro.
