According the the BBC the Spanish Prime minister has hailed the agreement to bail out Spanish banks as a "victory".

This statement, alongside the hundreds of other delusional ones since the crash of 2007/8 shows how completely fucked up the political elite is in Europe.
Right now, David Cameron should be saying if the Eurozone can't get its act together soon, we will cast ourself adrift and let the whole sorry ship sink. Its time for him and the Odious Osborne to stop bitching and whining about how the Eurozone is affecting us and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

Being an adult and choosing the difficult path rather than the easy money is a no-brainer for our no-brain population.
