Before the end of the year, that is all I ask.
Heated words are being exchanged between world governments as further signs emerge that the euro might not survive its debt crisis. David Cameron has called for the EU's rule book to be rewritten - and has previously promised to take back powers from Brussels. But the British PM's stance has drawn a hostile reaction ahead of his visit to Germany this week. Volker Kauder, the leader of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's political party, said Britain needs to stop "defending its own interests" and do more to help solve the crisis. He also re-emphasised Germany's support for a financial transactions tax, which the British Government sees as an attack on the City of London.
