More to the point Surgainho, how long will it be before France destroys the Euro by leaving it or ignoring the rules sufficiently to make the currency worthless.

Ireland is already melting down, house prices here have gone into reverse since October, and very quickly. Scary stuff if you've bought in the last couple of years.

Checked out the building activity in Almeria Spain last year, the place is chronically overdeveloped, the infrastructure appaling and building standards are even worse. If you want to get ripped off or burn money then this is definately the place to go.
