I do seek to oppose and encourage others at home and abroad to oppose Merkelism as FF are not looking likely to be in govt. anytime soon unless FG bastardise them back into the mothership. and meanwhile we are still dealing with this ideology which has many overeager converts in FG/Labour.
Merkel will have to deal with a lot of awkward governments from Greece, Cyprus, Spain and hopefully Ireland from 2015 onwards. I expect Italy and France to get even more militant too considering the populist right's advances there. Austria supports Italy in this.
Hollande especially has 3 years and nothing to lose by throwing the sink at Merkel.
I would point out though what you are saying about what was needed required a continuation of the Punt, not joining the euro, which I assume from your post you agree was a major mistake led by the greed of the elite of the day as well as blind ideology(PDS) and corruption(FF mostly, but also pds).
