    Default The EU isn't working

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    If some of them would leave Spain and come and work in shops and restaurants in NL we might get some decent service around here.

    Right now the 'stronger' Euro countries, i.e. Germany and Holland, seem to be OK; it's the weaker countries who are really feeling the pain. Perhaps time to split into Northern and Southern euro.

    Default Ford moving to Spain

    Ford will be closing its factory in Gent Belgium and moving to Valencia in Spain next year as the Spanish are cheaper. If you are a Multinational then the EU is working but if you are a Belgian or UK car worker then it's not working
