Very difficult, given German history and the inclination to do what they are told

Not sure you are right there, OFSO. Obviously ever more rescues require ever more money and, in the German fashion, the maximum amount that can be lent ( by Germany ) without further parliamentary approval ( difficult in a year with crucial elections ) has been specified as a hard number and is nearly all used up.

The Constitutional Court has also been invoked a couple of times and has said very clearly that politicians are not able to bend and break aspects of the constitution just to accommodate Brussels/The Euro.
