European Crisis Part 1

Just heard a report that Sarkozy is having separate meetings with the Germans and the Spanish over the next few days.
Now I understand that this is probably the way these things get done and maybe Sarkozy is playing the facilitator, but to my mind this send a message that the solution is purely being driven by Germany and France and that the other countries are waiting to be told what to do.
If we are trying to sell the idea of Europe as a unified state that is not purely driven by a Franco-Saxon agenda then this is not the way to go.
