Europe leaders warn of difficult 2012
Source: BBC

European leaders have warned of a difficult year ahead, as many economists predict recession in 2012.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Europe was experiencing its "most severe test in decades" but that Europe was growing closer in the debt crisis.

France's President Sarkozy said the crisis was not finished, while Italy's president called for more sacrifices. <snip>

The leaders' new year messages came as leading economists polled by the BBC said they expected a return to recession in Europe in the first half of 2012.

1. But Only For The Peasants

3. The won't give up their brutal 'Austerity' programs
which are nothing more than making the people pay for the gambling debts of the Banksters.

Blind leaders. And they will be shocked and amazed when the civil unrest their policies create, becomes more than can handle.

They are so removed from the people they are supposed to represent. Too wealthy to view their populations as equals.

It's remarkable that so many of those leaders who care nothing for their people should all be in these positions at the same time. That are no voices of reason among them.
