Germans are putting EU in 'dangerous situation'

David Cameron and Angela Merkel have acknowledged differences over the eurozone crisis but stressed they have the "same plan" for European growth at their meeting in Berlin yesterday.

George Eustice, a eurosceptic Tory MP, believes that "those who say a break-up of the euro will be a catastrophe are overstating it". He adds that some countries coming out of the euro may be "part of the solution rather than the problem".

David Rennie, political editor of The Economist, disagrees and says that there is not an "unholy alliance" between the Germans and Tory MPs over a renegotiation of the treaty. He adds that Germany's refusal to let the European Central Bank intervene in the eurozone crisis is putting the EU in a "dangerous situation".
