    I can say that IF this concerned me, I could almost buy Germany's excuse, but France's? No F'ing way! Britain or any other member nation wouldn't like to use R & D as a reason to blow the 'ceiling?' Personally I think the ceiling is a stupid idea, but it's their's:

    Yes, France and Germany didn't always respect the Pact of Stability.

    But they have excuses.


    If this pact is too stricly interpreted, and that with a such interpretation, France and Germany have large problem in EU, it would be the whole EU who would have problems.

    be sure that France and Germany do their best to reduce the deficit, but there are also all the interior spends. The 2 countries have their problem.

    Greece lied to enter in the Euro zone, France and Germany are only a little upon 3 percent.

    I know, and the politics also, that it is a problem, but with some grow previsions, the situation would be better soon.

    We have 'excuses' too, we didn't like over 2k of people in our country killed. We didn't like our guys shot at from Iraq over a 'no kill zone.'
    We didn't like oil for food problems.

    Your country is the sick joke of the world.

    Do you know perfectly the way of function of the EU ?
    No, probably.

    Are you concerned by the EU ? no.
    (remember, for you, I was not concerned by the election of the US president, so....)


    USA's deficit, I believe, is awesome.

    France and Germany are a little upon the limit, they will be down it soon, so where is the problem ?

    Oh I am ever so concerned about the EU. I am kept sleepless with the idea they may invade my country down the road, when they choose to spend the money, after they solve all the world's problems. Of course first they must get rid of their vermin in the eastern part of the continent, not to mention the nasty islands off the continental coast.
