Merkel finds some peace and quiet away from those noisy markets

In the wake of massive financial market turmoil, most eurozone leaders have taken to running around like headless chickens. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, on the other hand, has decided to put her feet up and relax.

Away on holiday in the chilled-out South Tyrol, Merkel has confirmed that she’ll be away for next week too. Question is, will the eurozone still be in working order by the time she’s back?

In an attitude reminiscent of the legend of King Canute, Merkel's office today declared (on her behalf we should add):
“Markets caused the drama now they have to make sure to get things straight again”
It's like taking a bull into a china shop, watching it destroy half the store and then leaving to let it clean up its mess....
