The Gazillion Euro Question

The FT frames it all nicely for today’s German vote:

The gazillion euro question is not whether MPs will vote to expand the EFSF (that’s a given since the opposition is backing the move) but whether Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, will preserve her absolute majority. If the rebellion gets above 19 MPs then she’s in trouble. Current predictions suggest that won’t happen but nothing can be taken for granted.
